Our project's beneficiary, the Simpson House, is a leading nonprofit organization in Minneapolis, Minnesota providing assistance to people experiencing homelessness. They provide an emergency shelter, single adult supportive housing, and family supportive housing. They work across the metro area, partnering with landlords and developers to find affordable housing for all families and individuals.
My name is Isabella and I am the developer and organizer of this donation drive. I am a Life Scout from troop 5384 located in Richfield, Minnesota. I am part of the first class of girls in the Boy Scouts of America's Scouts BSA program and am working on my Eagle Scout rank. One of my requirements to earn the rank is to organize and carry out a service project. I chose my project beneficiary to be the Simpson House because it is an incredible non-profit organization that I have been volunteering at for as long as I can remember. The majority of my project team is made up of scouts from my troop.
