Eagle Scout Project

Collection for St. Jude’s Kids


Hello, my name is Michael Tortorici and I am a member of Orland Park Boy Scout Troop 318. I am currently working on my Eagle project. I will be collecting brand new toys or other items such as: playing cards, Crayola products, Legos, and art supplies for the children at St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. St. Jude’s Hospital treats children diagnosed with cancer and other childhood diseases. I hope that my collection would give some joy and comfort to the children who are undergoing treatments.
