Eddie Lyon, Life Scout of Boy Scout troop 183 in Little Neck, NY, remembers what it was like to be a foster child shuffling from one family to another until you really find a “home”.

Eddie has made it his Eagle Scout project through Lutheran Social Services of NY to bring to over 100 children in the foster care system of greater New York a bag of items that each child can keep as his/her very own.  Each bag includes a big, soft huggable teddy bear from Hugs Across America as well as some personal items such a toothbrush, soap, towel and a story book.

We are delighted to help Eddie with his project and are so very proud that he has chosen to help others in need.
