When 18 year-old Kevin Grosso set out to accomplish his Leadership Service Project in order to earn his Eagle Scout designation, it sounds like even he was surprised by what he was capable of.
The Eagle Scout Leadership Service Project is the culmination of a scout’s training and an opportunity for him to demonstrate his leadership skills. After deciding against some initial project ideas, Kevin determined he wanted to do something that the community truly needed. He then approached his local Salvation Army in Nashua, NH asking how he could be of greatest service to them.
The Nashua Salvation Army just happened to be down to their last few diapers, which they said is always a significant need, so Kevin’s project became suddenly clear: a diaper drive.
In four months, by setting up drop-off stations, seeking donations, and organizing events, Kevin collected an amazing 15,500 diapers, a year’s supply for the Army!
Thanks, Kevin, for your hard work and choosing The Salvation Army as your partnering organization. Our clients will benefit greatly from the diapers you’ve worked tirelessly to collect.
And congratulations on earning your Eagle Scout rank. You earned it!
