CMR Student is Rebuilding a Truck to Help Boys and Girls Club

Posted: Updated:
GREAT FALLS -

A CMR High School student is hard at work to rebuild a classic car with all proceeds going to the Boys and Girls Club. Greighsen Adams is a Senior at CMR High School, who is taking her community based project to a whole new level. She is hard at work putting back together a truck to help support the Boys and Girls Club of Cascade County.

"It is a 1952 Chevy and right now I'm working on the body and what that means is I am sanding it so I can prime it for paint," says Greighsen Adams.

When she came to her father, Spencer Adams, with the idea he couldn't have been prouder about the reasons behind the cause.

"I'm very proud of what she is doing, this is really working out well for her she is learning a lot of highs and lows that she is going to take with her on to business school at the University of Montana. Plus she is benefiting something she really truly believes in and that's the Boys and Girls Club of cascade county, they are going to be the ultimate beneficiaries of this project,"

What makes this truck in pieces so special is the parts that young Greighsen is using comes from a list of community members who have been donating their resources.

"Everything is being donated, even the money used to pay for things that are not being donated has been donated. I do actually I want to thank Chris from Gotcha Covered, Chuck from Chuck's Customs and Pam Metcalf from LMC whose donated everything except the 3 really big things," answers Greighsen.

Greighsen says folks can still donate at her web site as some items she needs to finish this unique project can only be acquired through purchase.

"And my web site is MYseniorproject.com donations are very much appreciated," says Greighsen.

Greighsen hopes to be finished with her project by this May, but she plans to keep working on the truck to make sure it's in full working condition by August where she will sell the truck at an auction with all the money going to the Boys and Girls Club.
