Jack's Eagle Project Go Fund Me

Posted on Jan 18 2023 - 9:59pm
Jack is working on an Eagle Scout Project for Hopewell Troop 8 to benefit the CYWA, Coatesville Youth & Women’s Alliance shelter.His goal is to raise enough money to revitalize the front landscape of the Coatesville Youth & Women's Alliance Shelter. The CYWA improves people’s lives physically and mentally by offering a non-perishable food distribution program twice a week for those in need, transitional housing for women and children and a drug rehabilitation program, amongst other beneficial programs.
Jack wants to improve the CYWA and make it more welcoming by revitalizing the front landscaping of the building.Currently, when you walk up to the building you are greeted by a vast empty, lifeless weed-filled flower bed with a handful of dead plants. The front of the building has simply been forgotten and neglected. His plan is to bring the 50 foot space to life. He will need funds to install approximately 30 bushes or plants, weed, apply soil, and mulch the 50 foot space. Since the CYWA operates on donations, this project is dependent on people like you.
Please consider helping me bring the CYWA back to life by contributing to this much needed project. The CYWA thanks you for your support.  Please visit https://www.gofundme.com/f/jack-brunners-eagle-scout-project for more information and to donate.
