Stephen McKinney's Eagle Scout project isn't the typical community project.
McKinney is working to help those who are fighting for their lives, one can at a time.
McKinney, 16, son of Stephen and Wanda McKinney, and a Rising Sun High sophomore and all As honor student, is completing his Eagle Scout requirements by collecting food for the needy.
But this isn't your typical food drive.
"I've made a lot of friends through scouting. You learn a lot of stuff and you help people and meet people," he said.
He has been attaching flyers to bags and distributing them. He also has placed drop boxes at several locations.
Pre-fill the bus drop locations for non-perishable items are: CCPS Credit Union in Elkton and North East, North East Police Department, Cecil Sheriff's Office, Rising Sun Town Hall, Tendercare Learning Center off Razor Strap Road, North East, All About You Hair Salon in Perryville, at the bus on December 20 at Walmart North East from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m.
