Local Teen Raising Money for Church Flagpole

Tyler Dunn hopes to raise $2,200

June 26, 2017 (EMPORIA, Va.) – Tyler Dunn has been involved with the Boy Scouts since he was 12 years old, and is now pursuing his Eagle Scout rank. To earn this rank, Tyler must complete a community improvement project. He’s raising money through RedBasket.org to install a flagpole at a local church.

The flagpole will be installed at Main Street Baptist Church in Emporia. Tyler will need to purchase the 25-foot pole, an American flag, concrete, lights, and other supplies for the project.

“The church does not currently have a flagpole, therefore the project will allow them to demonstrate patriotism to our great country,” said Tyler.

To help offset the costs of this project, Tyler has partnered with RedBasket.org to host an online fundraiser. He hopes to raise $2,200 to purchase the necessary supplies.

“Help this church gain a symbol of freedom and American values that is important to our country, the American flag,” Tyler said.

The fundraiser will be online through August 4. To learn more or to make a tax-deductible donation, please visit https://redbasket.org/1330/tylers-patriotic-eagle-scout-project.
