What happened Sunday in a garage off Green Valley Road will go across the world.
Boy Scouts of America, Troop 482 in Fairfield, helped Ben Gribi collect books for his Eagle Scout project to send about 10 boxes of books as part of the Books for Africa drive.
“It was about not thinking about ourselves,” said his father, Jim Gribi. “What we do here has an impact somewhere else.”
Gribi, 17, a graduate of Buckingham Charter Magnet High School in Vacaville who attends Solano Community College, said the drive included circulating fliers in neighborhoods a week before returning to pick up books.
