    Emergency Family Shelter Renovation

    A 15-year-old Boy Scout in Mendon's Troop 105, Noah Adams, visited the Volunteers of America's emergency family shelter and volunteered to renovate the kids' playroom for his Eagle Scout project. "It's very important to me that kids can be kids and they can have a safe and fun place to play and be themselves," he said.
