Number of service hours: 165 hrs
Name of Project: Homeless Shelter Improvements
Description of Project: Harrison’s project consisted of making improvements around one of his local homeless shelters both inside and outside. A solar light was installed onto their flagpole so an American flag can be flown and seen at night. Hinges were installed onto downspouts so they can be raised up when shoveling snow as well as mowing grass and fasteners were also installed to help from blowing away in the wind. A bike rack was assembled for residents to park and lock their bikes without the fear of having them stolen. In addition, a picnic table and bench were assembled to give the residents places to sit and enjoy some time outside. Touchup painting was done around the inside of the building in many places to give more of a fresh look to them. Lastly a bookshelf was brought into the shelter and mounted in the family section many books that were donated for all the children and adults to read.
