SCRANTON — A teen from Dickson City lent a very special hand to some homeless folks at the Scranton Rescue Mission Thursday night.
Larry Menendez is working on his eagle scout project. He decided to load 50 backpacks with essential supplies for people with no place to live. Inside those backpacks are tarps, blankets and other items.
“What I feel is God is calling me to this. I have always wanted to help people in the community and so this is what i chose,” said Menendez of Boy Scout Troop 322.
As part of his project, Menendez also helped cook and serve a meal at the rescue mission in Scranton on Thursday night.
