For his Eagle Scout Service Project, Sapp built shelves and organized different church committee needs for shelving and storage for the Lake Mills United Methodist Church.
The Church did not have enough shelving in their shed and the second-floor attic storage unit was not sturdy nor labeled and disorganized. He first met with the different committees to figure out what would best suit all their needs. From there, he researched what would make the best sense and what would be the easiest to maintain. He installed two shelving units in the shed, took a full list of inventory and categorized it by each separate committee He labeled each shelf with the different committee names for easy organization and cleaned and organized the shed. The new shelving units in the shed added 160 sq. feet of storage space. He installed one shelving unit in the second-floor attic, replacing the smaller wood unit with an easier to maintain unit that is labeled and organized.
