Eagle Scout, Reid Montague, came to KCR with an idea; complete an Eagle Scout project that would help those who came to KCR in need of help.
Coordinating with the KCR Support-A-Student program, a project to supply backpacks and school supplies to homeless school children was launched.
Reid and his team of volunteers were able to collect school supplies from shoppers outside of Fred Meyer and also solicited other businesses such as Walmart, Target and Costco for further donations.
Within four short days, they raised over $6,063 worth in school supplies and was able to help over 108 children (and counting).
They also prepared all of the donated items for either distribution or organized them for inventory for use throughout the year.
KCR and the families we serve THANK YOU Reid!
