The newest Eagle Scout Troop 147B - Dylan Gause
Manna Storehouse Assist
Boy Scouts of America, Again
Dylan Gause from Scout Troop #147B was our 5th Scout to design and build a project earning him the prestigious “Eagle Scout” Badge.
About 6 months ago Dylan came into Manna Storehouse to volunteer his services in our receiving area. While working there he informed us he was in search of a project to meet the qualifications for the Eagle Scout Badge. He noticed an area where we stored our excessive bags of clothes, toys, household goods that we give to other organizations in need. The bags were being stored in disarray directly on the concrete floor. He suggested that he Design, Organize, and get the necessary approvals from Troop Council for the project to meet the rigid requirements for the Eagle Badge. And then he would organize and supervise troop 147B to do the building of the storage platform. The Troop finished building the project in one day, and provided all the supplies at no cost to Manna. The volunteers at Manna Storehouse thank Dylan and all who were involved.

Boy Scout Andrew Curtis from Troop #31 has completed his Eagle Scout project at Weatherford's Non-Profit Organizatiion Manna Storehouse. Manna has bimonthly garage Sales where excess donated items are sold for money to buy food for our needy clients. We needed some organization in one of our sale areas, and Andrew and his team stepped up to the challange. We appreciate all of Troop #31's particaption.

Eagle Scout Project – Zachary Conner
Manna Storehouse of Weatherford Texas has been assisting the Boy Scouts of America’s Eagle Scout Project (the Scout’s highest level of accomplishment), by providing project ideas for the scouts to plan, organize, assemble materials, and construct the final project. All along though, the prospective Eagle Scout must provide extensive details, make detailed presentations and get numerous approvals from the Eagle Scout committee.
Eagle Scout Zachary Conner, Aledo high school senior from Scout Troop #31, Brazos River District, recently completed such a project for Manna. We at Manna Storehouse continuously accept donations from the community to provide for Parker County people in need. These items are distributed as requested, and the remaining items are provided at bimonthly garage sales to raise money for food and occasionally pharmacy or electric assistance. We receive thousands of books each year and organizational storage has always been a problem. Zachary, along with his Scout Troop #31, has used his skills and leadership techniques to provide us with a book storage area. It is being use and appreciated. All volunteers at Manna appreciate your hard work and dedication. Thank you Zach.
Eagle Scout Project-Jason Overton
Manna Storehouse has recently been involved with helping several Boys Scouts work towards earning their Eagle Scout badges (The highest honor) by doing projects for us to help smooth our daily operations. One recent project was performed by Jason Overton from Boy Scout Troop 301. Jason’s project was to design, build and install some storage shelves for Manna to store items that are to be used at follow on seasonal garage sales. For example, we gather donated Christmas items throughout the year, give some as requested to our clients, and put the remaining on display for sale during the Christmas season. Storage is always a concern for us and thanks to Jason and his leadership, he has relived some of those problems.
Jason spent many hours designing the project, then guiding it though a detailed Eagle Scout approval process. An Eagle Scout project requires the scout to solicit the donations of money and supplies to begin a production. He was very successful with Lowes and Home Depot obtaining the necessary materials. The shelves were then produced at an offsite facility, and then assembled at our facility by many of the scout troop members with Jason’s guidance. Many manhours are required to complete a project of this extent.
We certainly appreciate Scout Jason and Troop 301 for their kind assistance helping Manna help those in need. All of us Manna Storehouse volunteers thank you Jason.
