Hurray for the Boys Scouts of Troop #597!

Ethan Koska of Boy Scout Troop #597 in Naperville and fellow scout Gabriel Drechsler, along with Ethan’s mom, Gert, stopped by the Center to drop off a wonderful donation of Party-in-a-Bag kits for the Children’s Birthday Project (CBP). Ethan heard about the program to help needy kids have a “Special Day” and became inspired to help out. He watched local stores' advertisements to find new toys on sale and visited the Dollar Store for party favors to make his philanthropic dollars go farther. He also sent a flyer out to the troop to recruit others to help. Gabriel responded and assembled a generous amount of party fixings and toys as well.

We would like to acknowledge Ethan and Gabe for being true leaders and for taking the Boy Scout tenet of “service to others” to heart and helping to brighten the birthdays of the children in our CBP program!
