Ross Teder, a Boy Scout of Troop 502, Isle of Palms, completed his Eagle Scout project on July 20. Teder organized a benefit concert to collect baby items for the Stork’s Nest. The Stork’s Nest is affiliated with the March of Dimes and is run by the Zeta Phi Beta sorority.

The benefit concert was held at Dog and Duck in Park West. Performers included fellow scout, Eric Van Overeem, Jessy Bronco, the band After English and Teder’s own band, Southern Gentleman. Teder coordinated this event with Meredith Repik of the March of Dimes, Cynthia Jenkins of the Stork’s Nest as well as Alli Bradley of Dog and Duck. 

Teder said that he teamed up with Dog and Duck of Mount Pleasant because they are big supporters of the March of Dimes and that they worked hard to support his efforts by providing a jump castle, outside bar, canopy tents for rainy weather and extra staff. In preparation for the concert, Teder organized the junior scouts of Troop 502 in preparing posters and handing out flyers throughout Park West. Members of the troop were also on hand at the concert to collect, sort and pack up donations for the Stork’s Nest.

The Stork’s Nest is a program that provides incentives to pregnant women to make and keep prenatal care appointments. It also teaches expectant parents about healthy prenatal and infant care practices. Women referred to the program earn “points.” They can then use these points to “purchase” items at the Stork’s Nest.

Items collected at the concert included new baby clothes, towels, washcloths, blankets, bottles, pacifiers and diapers. All baby items collected at the concert were delivered to The Stork’s Nest by Teder and fellow scouts on Saturday, July 27.
