Eagle Scout candidate, Nick Crawford, completed designing, planning and constructing a pallet cover for Elk Grove Food Bank Services.  Crawford and members from Troop 007 spent more than 185 hours over eight official build days creating the pallet cover.  TNT Fireworks and Total Service Logistics aided Crawford in this project by providing a covered work area and transportation of completed components to the final construction site.
