A local teen’s Eagle Scout project is a life changer. An offsite collection day for Habitat for Humanity is the Eagle project 17 year old Daniel Orinick chose to pursue because of a deep seeded commitment to helping the organization.
Nancy Milkowski of Habitat for Humanity says, “he’s very inquisitive about how Habitat works has real [enthusiasm] for helping”.
Daniel collected an entire box truck of donations, along with some cash to help a favorite local non-profit. “I feel I made a difference in their lives,” says Daniel.
Milkowski adds, “that kind of drive and that kind of commitment [in the] community is exactly what we like to support and we were excited he was going to help us”.
For the purpose of the Eagle Scout project this was a one time event, but Daniel is ready to start planning for the second annual collection day already. “I like doing the things I do here and I like activities given to me and I like doing it with my brother and dad.”
Daniel and his family have been volunteering for Habitat for years, and they plan to continue indefinitely.
