The rank of Eagle Scout is the pinnacle in the Boy Scouts of America. Currently only about 6 percent of all boys that participate in Boy Scouts achieve this honor. David Tidwell of Big Spring Texas and Troop 1908, Buffalo Trail Council is very near to attaining this very achievement. Among the requirements to attain the Eagle rank a young man must plan, and supervise the carrying out of a project to benefit his community in some way.
On Saturday September 22 from 11 AM – 1 PM at the Big Spring Salvation Army David and other Scouts and volunteers will be distributing "Care Packages" to the homeless citizens of Big Spring. David with the generous support of the Big Spring community has collected enough to fill 100 of such care packages with items such as sock, t-shirts, hygiene products and some easy to prepare and eat food items.
Additionally, there will be pet care packages will be available for those that have pets. A hot meal will be provided to the homeless when they come to get their care package.
