Bridging Communities: Local Scout’s Eagle Project Enhances TECH Homes with Benches

December 13, 2023

In a heartwarming demonstration of community spirit and a commitment to making a positive impact, a local scout is setting out on a mission to transform the spaces at TECH, which serves adults and children with developmental and intellectual disabilities. With the ambitious goal of attaining the prestigious Eagle Scout rank, the Payton Huffman has chosen to undertake a project that goes beyond personal achievement—building benches to enhance the communal areas at TECH houses.

This budding community leader, driven by a sense of empathy and a desire to contribute meaningfully to the lives of others, has embarked on a journey to create welcoming and inclusive outdoor spaces for the residents of TECH houses. The project, rooted in the principles of service and compassion, aligns seamlessly with the nonprofit’s mission to provide a nurturing environment for adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities.

The scout’s initiative goes beyond constructing physical benches; it symbolizes a bridge between the local scouting community and TECH. As Huffman endeavors to bring this vision to life, his dedication not only embodies the spirit of scouting but also underscores the importance of collaboration in fostering a sense of community and support for those who call TECH houses home.

With a little help from his parents and donors, Huffman completed the project without fail, building 6 benches that were delivered to several of the TECH houses just in time for Christmas!
