Nazareth Academy graduate Andrew Koncel built and donated outdoor furniture to a house in the 1000 block of Stone Avenue, which houses clients from Helping Hand, an organization that serves people with disabilities. Koncel built two picnic tables, three planter boxes and a garden bench as part of his project to become an Eagle Scout.

“He was so happy that he could make these people happy,” said Karen Koncel, Andrew’s mom. “It was amazing how happy they were.”
