At IMG Academy, we realize the importance of giving back to those in need. Our students not only excel academically and athletically, they offer their volunteer services whenever possible. The following is an example.
As part of his duties to become an Eagle Scout, IMG Academy baseball program's Mike McCormack of Seattle took up a collection for the Plymouth Housing Group, which helps the homeless by providing resources, life skills and housing.
Here's what the Plymouth Housing Group's newsletter said about Reed's efforts:
Reed came to us last summer asking if he could collect food and household essentials for Plymouth as part of his Eagle Scout project. Being part of an inventive new generation, he set up a special collection website and solicited items from friends and family online.
In November, with the help of fellow scouts he collected non-perishable foods at Top Foods in Bellevue. We were blown away when Reed showed up at our door with a truck full of goodies--almost 40 boxes of food as well as nearly 30 boxes of bed and bath linens. Thank you, Reed, we are very thankful for your hard work and dedication to Plymouth.
