Local Boy Scout collects backpacks for children of military families
“...Military families sacrifice so much so it would only be right to help them with [the collection of school supplies] and show them we support them,” Adam said in a public statement.
Adam hopes that the supplies will last each military child through an entire school year.
On July 13, Adam spoke about his project at the 7th Annual ADAMS national Interfaith Ramadan Iftar Dinner. He collected donations and supplies. ADAMS main center, two Giant grocery stores and Herndon Community Center are also getting in on the donation action as backpack and supplies drop-off locations.
ADAMS is a Muslim community and mosque and nonprofit organization that has one of the largest Cub Scout, Boy Scout and Girl Scout programs in the metropolis area.
