“At last Monday night’s County of San Mateo Veterans Commission meeting, Eagle Scout (Troop 28, Burlingame) and Junipero Serra High School (San Mateo) junior James Holmes presented his Eagle Scout project that provided 75 backpacks to homeless veterans. Each backpack was filled with a blanket, t-shirt, socks, hat and gloves, shaving kit and toiletry items, flashlight and extra batteries, water bottle and food items — so useful to our homeless vet population. This project required a total of 371 hours of effort along with the help of 80 volunteers. Thank you, James! And thank you to our Veterans Commission Chairman Hank Scherf, himself an Eagle Scout.”
