Chris Oddi’s Eagle Project – Click for Details

January 12, 2014 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

I am beginning my Eagle Scout Project on January 11th-12th, and may need to set up one more time for Sunday the 19th just in case the project is not yet completed. For my project, I am building 4 wood picnic tables that fold and turn into park benches. Therefore, please bring clothes you don’t mind getting dirty as well as work gloves and appropriate shoes.

The organization I am helping out is called Door Of Hope, located in Glendale. This shelter serves battered women and children. On their site, they have a narrow backyard used as a play area for the kids, as well as ceremonial dinners for the adults. For the kids, they need benches that don’t take up much space and that they can sit on. For the adults, they need picnic tables that will be used for buffets as well as dinners in general. This is where my 2-in-1 benches come in, as they will accommodate any circumstance.

It would be awesome if you guys could help me out with my project, as the time you spend working can go toward your rank advancement as well as high school community service hours. The work will begin at 9AM and finish at 5PM at 265 North Vinedo Ave, Pasadena 91107. Once you reach the location, there will be signs leading you to the parking lot where all the manual work will be done. Once the project is finish, I will send the benches over to the Door of Hope in Glendale. Lunch and snacks will be provided.

If you plan on attending, please send me and email ( that I can have a head-count. Also, feel free to email me with any questions or concerns you may have. I look forward to seeing you on the 11th.
