From One Eagle Scout to Another, The Donation That Kept Giving

Published Wednesday, August 24, 2016 10:00 am

One of the requirements of achieving Eagle Scout status is a service project that the scout organizes and supervises. Recently, when Doug was looking for his Eagle Scout project, he wanted to find a way to work with Maumee Valley Habitat for Humanity and ReStore.

Doug knew he wanted to do a construction project, so he decided to build three picnic tables to donate to our ReStore. The profits from these picnic tables, as well as all profits from ReStore, help to support our Homeownership and Home Repair Programs.

Doug completed the tables and donated them to ReStore to be sold. The day after Doug’s donation, a ReStore customer wanted to purchase the tables for his wife’s restaurant, Pisanello’s Pizza in Grand Rapids, OH.

The story came full circle when we discovered that the customer who purchased the tables is also an Eagle Scout. He was happy he could help out a fellow scout and also help homeowners in Lucas County by making a purchase at ReStore.

We received a picture of the tables at Pisanello’s Pizza, and ironically, the restaurant is right next to a Boy Scout troop cabin.

We’re so glad that we were able to help Doug become an Eagle Scout, while simultaneously continuing to help homeowners in Lucas County.

Visit our ReStore for your home good and building material needs. We’re located in Maumee, OH at 1310 Conant St. and we’re open Tues-Sat 10-6.
