Fondy Food And Blood Drive An Eagle Scout Project
A Fond du Lac Boy Scout will see his Eagle Scout project come to fruition Saturday. Ean Quarne is an eighth grader at St. Mary’s Springs Academy. He’s organized a Food and Blood Drive that will be held at Immanuel Trinity Lutheran Church in Fond du Lac from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. The idea for the project came to him from some of the news coverage he’s seen of disastrous events over the past few years. He says, “I chose my project as I watched all the devastation of the floods, hurricanes, wildfires, Las Vegas shootings and many others over the past years.” He worked with the Blood Center of Wisconsin and Fondy Food Pantry to organize the drive and enjoyed working on it. He says, “It was a very fun journey and I learned a lot.” He’s hoping to get 1,000 non-perishable food items donated and 90 blood donations. Ean is a member of Troop 701 in Fond du Lac. He hopes to become an engineer in the future, but would prefer to work as an aerospace engineer.
