San Antonio Airport Police Officer Dean Babcock’s 14 year old son Jacob is working towards his Eagle Scout badge and is currently attempting to complete his final project.
Jacob has elected to do a pet food drive benefiting DAISEY CARES. It is a non-profit organization that provides pet food, treats, urgent/emergency aid toward veterinary care for needy pets and owners.
Jacob’s goal is to donate 500 pounds of dog and cat food to DAISEY CARES. I think with all our help he can easily double his goal, which is what I would like to see. With this being such a worthy project and is a way to help a young man reach a very important milestone that few actually reach.
Earning Eagle Scout is a tremendous honor and takes a lot of dedication from the scout and his family, especially to reach this level at 14. This honor will be with him for the rest of his life.
We can all assist him in reaching his goal, while at the same time helping our community by donating cans and/or bags cat and dog food.
If anyone would like to contribute to this very worthy cause, it would be greatly appreciated. For just a few dollars, we can make a huge impact. In fact, a 50 lb. bag of HEB dog food cost less than $20.00 and every little bit will helps.
I have attached flyer in case anyone needs them.
Thank you in advance.
