    Grayson's Eagle Project
    Crestwood Animal Shelter
    Whitecliff Park
    December 19-20, 2015

    Boy Scout Grayson West of Troop 161 is a life-long supporter of rescue organizations, along with his family, so it was no surprise that he chose to focus his Eagle Project on helping animals in his own community. Grayson, with the help of his carpentry mentor and Venture Crew 2161 Associate Advisor, Larry Cain, as well as many fellow scouts, adult leaders, and family volunteers, Grayson's project became a reality. Earning his Eagle rank has been a life-time goal for Grayson during his 10 years of active scouting, and the Eagle Project is one of the final steps in his journey.

    The Crestwood Animal Shelter, located within Whitecliff Park, is the beneficiary of Grayson's Eagle Project. When approached and asked what could really benefit the shelter's cats and dogs, VP Mary Balles replied, "a donation chest so that people can donate to the shelter anytime".

    The shelter is run 100% by volunteers and serves the community with the help of fundraising, monetary and in-kind donations. In the past, the only way for people to donate much needed items was to drop them off during limited volunteer hours. Now the community can donate anytime that's convenient for them, hopefully encouraging even more donations for the shelter.

    Ryan, manager of Sunset Hills Home Depot generously donated 100% of the materials needed to build the donation chest. Don Greer, Owner of Signarama, kindly supported the project by donating both signs for the chest. "It takes a village... and our village came through in the strongest of ways. It makes me proud to be a St. Louisan and a Scout."

    You, too, can help support the Crestwood Animal Shelter, a 501(c)3 organization, by donating: paper towels, dog/ cat beds, dog/cat treats, perfume-free laundry detergent, non-clumping kitty litter, and monetary donations.
