Zachary BreyTIFTON — Zachary Brey, from Boy Scout Troop 333, donated bedding to the Tifton Fire Department for his Eagle Scout project on May 20.

He donated enough pillows, sheets, mattress covers and comforters to replace all of the current bedding at the three manned fire stations.

Brey has been involved in scouting since he was 8 years old and is working on obtaining Eagle Scout rank, which is the highest achievement attainable in the Boy Scouts of America.

He chose this as his Eagle Scout project because he said firefighters “risk their lives for us, so I wanted to make sure they could get good sleep.”
