Join us as we honor Dr. Martin Luther King's legacy of service by continuing our service to the youth of Cleveland.

The Challenge:
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Cleveland encourage children and their parents to take books home to read. They found that children wouldn't take books on regular bookcases and that they would take them if left on a table, but it was always a mess!

The Answer:
A small bookcase easily positioned for children and parents to access it.

The Task:
The platoon will be constructing small bookcases for several of the clubs around the city to use for the free books being offered to children and their parents!

The Motivation:
"Everybody can be great... because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love." - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
