My name is Jake Moore, and I am a Boy Scout working on my Eagle
Scout Project. My project involves acquiring funds for the
construction of computers for the Port Arthur International Seafarers’
Center. These computers will be used to provide seafarers with
internet access while they visit the Center.
Thousands of men and women visit the Seafarers’ Center annually.
These men and women have loved ones in other states and
countries, and often, communication with them is difficult. By
granting access to the internet, both foreign and domestic seafarers
would have the opportunity to do many things we “landlubbers” take
for granted. Tasks such as paying bills and online banking are
mandatory in today’s economy but difficult for most seafarers. In
addition, the opportunity to check social media and email are
activities most of us do many times a day, but seafarers have more
difficulty in doing so. Lastly, most of us see our loved ones on a daily
basis, but seafarers go months without seeing their family. My
project aims to resolve this problem.
The funds that are raised will be used to build equipment that would
allow seafarers the ability to conduct personal online business in
privacy and see their families online.
This effort would reflect on how our community welcomes travelers
into Southeast Texas while making a world class Seafarers’ Center
offer additional services to it’s visitors.
Please help us reach this lofty goal by donating to our cause.
