Cranston boy collects for future veterans

Posted

A city boy just wants to make the trip to basic training a bit easier for future veterans.

The Cranston Police Department is asking the public to help city Boy Scout Stephen Caniglia complete his Eagle project.

“Please help Cranston PD assist Stephen with his Eagle Scout Project and help our veterans at the same time,” according to a post on the department’s Facebook page. “His supply donation boxes will be in our lobby and several other locations throughout the city for the month of December.”

Caniglia is a member of Troop 66 Garden City, Cranston, and a senior at Cranston High School West.

“My Eagle Scout Project will benefit future Rhode Island soldiers,” Caniglia wrote on a flyer distributed around Cranston. “I will be collecting items to create care packages for these men and women to take with them on their bus ride to basic training. My hope is to make the trip easier and more enjoyable.”

Caniglia has a suggested list of donations, which include snacks, toiletries and paper products.

Collection boxes for Caniglia’s project can be found at the police department, the city’s public libraries and Chef-A-Roni Fancy Foods at 2832 County Trail, East Greenwich.

For pick-up, the public can call Caniglia at 401-787-8099 or email stephencanigliaeagleproject@gmail.com.
