Wheeler Mission Donation Barns
At the end of last year our Indy Team committed to helping Wheeler Mission with their donation barns. There were 11 barns in all that needed something done to them, be that just painting
or in this case a total rehab.
These barns are usually placed in a church parking lot, however this barn was located at their thrift store located at 2730 Madison Ave, Indianapolis.
What made this barn rehab a little more special is we were able to help Sam Hardesty with his Eagle Scout Leadership/Service Project and the rest of his Scout Troop jumped right in to help him.
This was a WIN-WIN for everyone!!
This group consisted of the following: Team
Captain – Sam Hardesty (son of Amy Wright)
Scouts – John Banks, Corbin Banks, Charles Holiman, Alex Hardesty and Evan Fedor
Scout Adult Leaders – Scout Master – Dan Hursh, Assistant Scout Master – Mark Fakhoury, Assistant Scout Master – Chris Fedor,
Stefan Petranek, Tony Wright and Amy Wright.
The Scouts had to replace and/or repair the door frame, floor stringers, rotting floor boards, rebuilt the door, all the exterior siding, replaced all the trim and painted the exterior of the barn and reattached the required signs to the barn.
The Scouts did a great job and Wheeler Mission was happy to sign off on the work they did. Great Team Work and glad this project was able to help not only Wheeler Mission but also Sam Hardesty and Troup 72!
