Page 6 Free Press Thursday, February 26, 2015 I By LYNETTE HAGEL Contributor Cheney resident and local Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and Boy Scout Troop member, Brock Jongeward earned his Eagle Scout award by helping a local non-profit company. Jongeward was searching for a meaningful service project to fulfill his goal to become an Eagle Scout. He and his mom, Laura Jongeward saw a need at Inland Northwest Baby (INB). INB is a local non-profit com- pany that started out providing dia- pers for needy families. They have bridged out into providing clothing as well. Their location was a simple room with plastic tables that they used to sort through all the clothing donations they received. The owner, as well as Jongeward, saw an opportunity to build some cabinets that would help them to be more organized, therefore serving more people. A design was created and donated by a local architect. Jongeward then set forth to manage the project, which in- cluded finding a cabinet builder willing to help and donate materials. Superior Craft Cabinets, a West Plains business answered the call. Jongeward was concerned that he might have a difficult time getting the wood donated. He wanted to use a wood that would make solid cabinets that would last a long time. Supe- rior Craft Cabinets was able to donate enough beautiful birch veneer to build three cabinets. Additionally, Spokane Community See Jongeward page 9 Contributed photo by Lynette Hagel Cheney resident Brock Oongeward, with the help of Superior Craft Cabinets and local boy scouts, built and donated three cabinets to Inland Northwest Baby.

Carrie loved to name each one as they I met Floyd Floyd and Carrie Low joined the falnily. "First came Phillip, then Carol, Glenn, Shirley, and David." Some of their children's families still live next door to Floyd and Carrie. Carrie mentions that daughter Carol brings diet Pepsi to Floyd every week. In the early years, Floyd and Carrie had a travel trailer. Carrie said, "We traveled all over the United States. We found them all except for Maine. We belonged to the Thousand Trails. It was a large traveling group and many of them became our friends." Life was very busy as the Lows' planned and built their own home and those of their children and also those of neigh- bors.

Floyd worked for Armor meat packing plant for 21 years. When the owner of Armor meat retired, Floyd began a family owned construction company. On a cold day, Floyd and Carrie noticed two 5-year-old children playing in a nearby yard with bare feet. They found the children's father sometimes fell asleep, working nights to support his children. The Lows became foster parents. Other children who needed help and guidance began to join the two.
