Project Helps YWCA Shelter

Posted: Updated:

What was supposed to be just a project for a local Boy Scout turned into something much bigger, thanks to many helping hands in the community.

In order for 16-year-old Adam Schutt to earn Eagle Scout rank, he needed to complete a project.  With a little help from his dad, Schutt came up with the idea to help the YWCA.

For two months, Schutt dedicated roughly 206 hours working to put together a swing set and add landscaping at the shelter. But, he couldn't have done it alone.

"I went to businesses I knew had the supplies I needed and went to see if they would help," says Schutt. 

"I just think it is great how Adam was able to organize other Boy Scouts to help him in this project and I think it's just awesome.  He did a wonderful job and we're all really proud of what he did," says YWCA Resident Director. 

The check will be used for day-to-day operations at the YWCA.  Once a board reviews Schutt's paperwork, he will hopefully become an Eagle Scout within the next few weeks.
