On June 14, 2008 scouts and adults of Troop 202 assisted Isaiah Smith in his Eagle project to paint four rooms for residents at the Russell Street Residence of the Berkeley Food and Housing Project. A few older scouts met the day before to clean the rooms and prepare for painting. The next day the scouts covered the floors and windows and painted the corners. Later the large surfaces were rolled and the trim was painted. Finally the rooms were cleaned and vacuumed and made ready for the residents to return.
