John’s Eagle project was the creation of a recycling and donations collection center for Glenn Memorial United Methodist Church. In the theme of reuse and recycle, he used mostly repurposed items to create his project. He used a discarded cabinet to make a bin to hold donated clothes and coats. He used another cabinet and parts of a pallet to build a unit to collect used cell phones, ink cartridges and sneakers for recycling. He also repurposed an old bowling alley locker to become a “food pantry,” a secure place to store donated canned and nonperishable food.
John Harrington earned the rank of Eagle Scout on December 15, 2015, 6 years and 6 months after joining Troop 175.
