Port Orchard, Washington - April 2018

Zachary Darner’s little brother got sick as a baby. Wanting children to feel safe in the hospital during Christmas, he decided to start a toy drive. In 2016 Darner ended up distributing 259 toys out of his 50 toy goal. Wanting to continue the tradition, Darner held the toy drive again this year and Port Orchard Aerie #2338 donated 1,500 toys for the cause. The 1,500 toys were part of a large donation the Eagles received four years ago that were not yet been distributed. In addition to the generous toy donation, past President Tom Riedel commended Zachary for his work and made him an honorary Eagle.
