First of all, I would like to thank you SO much for your donation. Without you, my Eagle Project could not have been completed. I really appreciate your actions to help our community during the COVID-19 pandemic. When I originally planned out my Eagle project, I set a goal of creating 100 hospital gowns to help our health care workers, retirement homes, hospitals, clinics, and other people in need. A massive response in our community to this project helped me achieve this hope and far surpass it. I recently delivered 131 hospital gowns to Capstone Family Medicine, specifically to Dr. Erickson. He will distribute the gowns to where they are needed the most in our community. It was really awesome to see the sheer quantity of hospital gowns being delivered. Only because of the support of participants like you was this project even remotely possible.
In short, I am happily amazed by the success of this Eagle project. The hospital gowns will help keep people safe from the virus. Thank you so much for your donation. Just like the hospital gowns, you are a critical part in keeping our community safe. I hope this letter finds you in good health and spirits. Thanks again!
Hello! My name is Paul Ludwig. I was born in Palmer and I am a lifelong resident of the Mat-Su Valley. Currently I am a Life Scout in Boy Scout Troop 300 based in Wasilla, Alaska. In light of the recent COVID-19 epidemic, I am aligning my Eagle Project to help those most in need right now - our local health care workers. My goal is to create 100 reusable hospital gowns to protect both our health care workers and their patients. This project will benefit Mat-Su Regional Medical Center, local physician’s offices and clinics, and retirement communities.
As you know, social distancing measures have been put into effect all across America. Due to these important restrictions, I had to get creative with how I could help and lead others to complete my Eagle project. My family and I have prepared kits containing all the materials and instructions needed to create a reusable hospital gown. Volunteers who sign up to help will receive a kit and it will be personally delivered with no physical contact. Upon completion the gowns will be picked up, again with no physical contact, and delivered to Dr. Erickson at Capstone Clinic to distribute to those medical professionals in need in our community.
This project is important to me on many levels. My mother is a Registered Nurse at Mat-Su Regional Medical Center. She is caring for patients every day. I want her, her co-workers, her patients, and everyone she comes into contact with to be protected and safe from harm. Your donation will not only help those in direct contact with Coronavirus - it will help their families, friends, and neighbors by promoting safe care for everyone. Please consider donating to further this just cause. All proceeds will be used to pay for the materials included in the gown making kits.
