Prudential’s Spirit of Community Awards, David Barge- Volunteering through Boy Scouts

The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards program recognizes middle level and high school youth for their volunteer work in the community. Awards are given to Local, State-Level, and National Honorees. The honorees are chosen for their initiative, effort, impact, and personal growth in their volunteer work. HandsOn Jacksonville is pleased to share with you Florida’s outstanding 2012 middle school State-Level  Honoree, David Barge:

David Barge, 13, of Miami, FL logged more than 300 hours last year volunteering in his community with his Boy Scout troop. David says, “Being a Boy Scout gives me the opportunity to make a difference in many areas that are important to me, such as helping the environment, assisting the disabled and the poor, and honoring my country.” Through his troop, David has cleaned beaches and parks and refurbished a local elementary school. He is also actively involved with veterans in his community.  David documents the graves and history of deceased veterans, visits disabled veterans, and serves them meals during the holidays. His other community service activities include completing a walk-a-thon for breast cancer awareness, volunteering at an animal shelter, and helping to retire old American flags.

HandsOn Jacksonville is proud of David and is excited to hear what our 2013 middle level applicants have been able to accomplish. To learn more please visit:
