The Story Of A Container
A container weighing 8,510 lbs. measuring 40 ft. long by 8 ft. wide and 9.5 ft. high appeared in the school parking lot on 8/23/2018. Andrew Webster took on a project to fill this container with a multitude of items needed in the Dominican Republic in an effort to obtain an Eagle Scout Badge. At first it seemed like an impossible task to fill this large a container but ever imaginable item, such as beds, dishes, cooking utensils, furniture, etc. just keep on coming. Every item needed to be weighed and tagged. It was a real challenge to pack it efficiently. Every nook and cranny was filled. Total weight at the end was 34,810 lbs. On 1/16/2019 the container began its journey to the Dominican Republic. Our Deacon Paul Umentum hopes to meet up with the container when he arrives in Eias Pina DR on 2/15/2019.
Andrew Webster deserves a WELL DONE for completed what at first seemed like an impossible task. No doubt the items sent will be put to good use by the needy people in the Dominican Republic
UPDATE: It has left our parking lot, and is on its way to The Dominican Republic!
