Dylan Hoppner Eagle Project Funding

Posted on May 18 2017 - 3:48pm

Hey guys, it's Dylan Hoppner. I am an older scout in the Troop and I am working on my Eagle Project; I am doing a Gaga ball pit for Odom Elementary and I could use your help raising money for the project. Currently, the school is part of a low income area and has no PTA to help back projects, so that means I must raise all the money for my project. Thanks a ton!!
