Donations Come Pouring In For One Local Teen

(IDAHO FALLS) – An Idaho Falls teen is making a difference for a local shelter. 15-year-old Jake Koplin wanted to promote respect for others, women, and mothers as part of his Eagle Scout project. During the last two weeks he’s collected more than 650 pieces of clothing, jewelry, and shoes – all for the Haven Shelter. Officials tell Local News 8 that they’ll use the clothes to help women dress well for job interviews. “If you work hard enough and do enough work, you can make an awesome difference in the community,” Koplin.
