Volunteer project highlight: An Eagle Scout Project takes on the Sun
A series of Eagle Scout projects made life at Bridging a lot cooler. So we’re hoping this video is cool, too. Patrick Hoffman and his team (including Dad) completed the final stage of a larger effort that included three Eagle Scout projects, all by the same Scout troop sponsored by St. Benedict Catholic Church in Ahwatukee. Patrick and his team installed a shade structure at Bridging’s primary loading area, where our crews load furniture for delivery on behalf of our social service agency partners. What a great effort! Many thanks to Patrick to his entire team, and to the other Scouts who chose Bridging AZ for their Eagle projects, to their teams, and to all the volunteers at Bridging AZ Furniture Bank. You mean so much to our agency.!
