Eagle Scout Sam Rosenberg walked into the St. Mary’s Food Bank offices in June, saying he wanted to devote his community service project to helping those in need this summer. His idea was to collect bottles of water from family, friends and his neighborhood – and Sam really threw his heart into this project.
Sam completed his project last week with some incredible results.
With the help of his family, Sam collected more than 3,400 bottles of water which St. Mary’s will be able to distribute to its partner agencies that are keeping those in need hydrated during these hot months. And while he went door to door in his neighborhood, Sam also collected more than $1,400 in donations, which will allow the food bank to distribute enough food to provide an additional 10,000 meals.
Thank you to Sam and the Rosenberg family for all their hard work. And thanks to everyone who saw Sam’s smiling face and donated to make this drive such an amazing success.
