Treasures of the Arc receives help from Eagle Scout candidate

Cheryl Rice Special to The Citizen

Treasures of the Arc, COEA's thrift store, received some extra special help from Joey Smith with Troop 769 out of Prairieville. Joey needed a community project to complete while he prepares for Eagle status. He chose Treasures of the Arc, which is an enterprise established to provide work skill

training for individuals with various disabilities in our community.

Joey with the help of fellow troop members Mason, Patrick, Triston and Brady dedicated 12-plus hours in planning, securing materials and assembling several shelving systems for the thrift store. The troop also organized a small donation drive to gather items for the store.

The items were put to good use right away and adds valuable space for items to be displayed. Treasures of the Arc would like to express our gratitude to Joey and his fellow troop members for this amazing contribution to our mission.
