Eagle Scout Gives Back in Honor of Tyler Duelm and Erin Potts

The Pediatric Oncology Treasure Chest Foundation recently received more than $1000.00, $2055.00 in gift cards and 100's of toys  thanks to the tireless work of LaGrange Park teenager Brendan Stepuszek, who earned his Eagle Scout badge as a result of the outstanding effort. Brendan organized and  implemented numerous toy drives throughout LaGrange including LaGrange Public Library, LaGrange Park District, St. Cletus Church, St. Francis Xavier and St. John of the Cross Parish in order to attain Eagle Scout status, the highest rank attainable by members of the Boy Scouts of America. Only three percent of Boy Scouts nationwide are able to achieve the coveted Eagle Scout ranking.

 

When asked about his motivation for the project, Brendan replied, "I wanted to work with the Treasure Chest Foundation because I thought they were a unique organization."
