Eagle and Service Project Ideas

The Habitat for Humanity Restore will work with Eagle Scouts who are looking for a project.  Scouts can build dog houses and/or play houses for the Restore's silent auction in November. Scouts can work on this anytime throughout the year and supplies will be provided.  The Restore will also work with Scouts to supply low cost building supplies for Scouts working on different projects! Contact Chris Houghton at 417-840-4210 for more information. 

Scouts can work with Adam Carsey to build trails in the Highlandville Area. This is also a service project possibility for units. Contact information is 417-496-1197,  

The Habitat for Humanity Restore is looking for units to help flyer neighborhoods in Springfield and the surrounding area. Units can pick up any number of flyers from the Restore and canvas a neighborhood of their choice. Flyers will have information about the Restore on them. If you are interested in working with the Restore on this or have an idea of your own, contact Chris Houghton at 417-840-4210.

Have any other Eagle and/or Service project ideas? Send them to and we will put our favorite on Facebook and this page!
