MARLBOROUGH – A Boy Scout working toward his Eagle Scout rank is planning a special fundraiser.
Jack Brzenk, who is a resident of Marlborough and a member of Troop 12 in Framingham, will stage “Tunes for Toiletries” on Thursday, Oct. 20, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Assabet Valley Regional Technical High School.
Brzenk got interested in scouting while attending St. Bridget’s School in Framingham. Currently, he’s a junior at Assabet.
The event will feature local musicians.
“Music has always been my passion, and I wanted to find a way to incorporate it into my Eagle project,” said Brzenk. “I believe that music helps bring people together, and after the pandemic forced so many musicians to perform online or not at all, I thought that this would be a great way to get people back on stage while supporting a good cause.”
The troop will be collecting toiletries at the door to benefit the Marlborough Community Cupboard. Items to donate include shampoos, conditioners, soaps, toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorants, razors and feminine products.
“Marlborough Community Cupboard did not request anything specific; however, I chose hygiene products because I learned that many teens miss school because of their lack of being able to afford these products,” said Brzenk.
