Orcutt Boy Scout hopes to raise $3,800 to put a library in Harvest Community Center

Posted: Updated:

Orcutt Boy Scout, Joseph Andrade of Troop 95, wants to keep the written word alive and well.

His hope is to raise $3,800 to build a library inside the Harvest Community Center (619 N. Railroad Avenue). The library would house English, Spanish and Mixteco literature. 

"I just want to do my part to promote literacy in the Santa Maria Valley," said Andrade, "Reading is they key to a better future. Good deeds are just cool." 

Andrade said that he chose Harvest Community Center, a small nonprofit that focuses on ending hunger and serving the community, because of its work toward helping the homeless and promoting education.
