What is CAPTAIN: Community Action for Parents, Teens and Interested Neighbors is one of the most recognized and highly respected volunteer-driven organizations, serving the principal social, educational and prevention needs of youth and families in Saratoga County and beyond. CAPTAIN’s programs and services address the core issues facing society today: youth homelessness, poverty, youth violence, underage drinking and drug use, academic failure and family dysfunction.
Project Scope: Construction of a 10 ft by 10 ft storage facility at CAPTAIN's Runaway and Homeless Youth Shelter location. Facility to store gear for high-adventure rope course and other outdoor activities for use by the various CAPTAIN programs.

If you have ANY questions, please comment or PM me! I will respond ASAP!
As for the whole online donations: I think it will be VERY cool if this works and I can raise the money this way. It will open up alternative donation methods for future Eagle Scouts, and help them achieve the rank of Eagle. For this to work, I am relying on YOU! I need you to spread the word; if you have a YouTube channel, make a brief video telling your subscribers to watch my video and help donate. Tell your friends/guild/alliance in Maple/WoW/Diablo/etc.!
Thank you for taking the time to read this and helping spread the word!
