I established a bookstore and library for the CARE Center in Berkley, Alabama. The bookstore offers quality books at greatly reduced prices to the clients of the CARE Center and to the Berkley Boys & Girls Club. The CARE Center's Bookstore was established to share my love of reading with the Berkley community with the hope that the establishment of such a facility would stimulate an interest of reading and learning in the area. Over 10,000 books were collected, counted, sorted, and priced by volunteers. The total number of hours worked on this project was approximately 587 man hours.  In recognition of the impact of this project on an entire community, I received the Talakto District 2006 Eagle Scout Project of the Year Award.
