Goochland Free Clinic and Family Services
Hercules Fence was proud to team with Hourigan Construction to support Goochland Cares with the construction of their new facility. Our team offered a temporary fence and a small wood dumpster as donations. This facility will have a huge impact on Goochland Families in need and houses medical and dental offices, a food pantry, counseling for families in need, and also a shelter for abused women.
Eagle Scout Project
Hercules Fence was proud to support Justin Bussard, an Eagle Scout Candidate from Boy Scout troop 395 out of Finksburg, MD as he completed his leadership project, a requirement to qualify for his rank of Eagle Scout. Justin’s project was to create an aquaponics system which would be located at North Carroll High School in Hampstead. An aquaponics system is a series of tanks that creates a system for farming fish and plants together in a mutually beneficial cycle. The Science Research program at NCHS will utilize the aquaponics system to conduct studies on the fish and the growth of plants. All produce grown will then be donated to local food banks. A portion of the system was scheduled to be located outside the school building and needed to be secured for safety reasons. Hercules Fence was happy to donate the fence materials that were required to build a 16 x 16 x 8 foot enclosure around the system. Hercules Fence was happy to partner with the Boy Scouts of America and North Carroll High School on this important project.
North Durham Youth Empowerment Project (YEP)
Hercules Fence is proud to support the North Durham Youth Empowerment Project (YEP). The YEP provides Baltimore City youth programs and workshops that build character as well as life skills. Focusing on youth between the ages of 6 and 14, the program is able to reach children during the time when the most critical developmental and social changes occur. Teaching children vital life lessons such as growing their own food, sewing their own clothes or creating crafts provides a positive experience that allows the youth to take pride in themselves and their community. The goal of YEP is that by learning life skills and taking pride in their community, the Broadway East youth will focus on ways to make positive changes rather than violence during times of trouble.

Boy Scouts of America – Eagle Scout
In September of 2013, Hercules Fence was presented with an opportunity to partner with Ben Bieryla an Eagle Scout Candidate from Troop 52 in Front Royal, VA. Ben’s Eagle Scout project was to organize and lead a group of local volunteers in providing an addition to the animal holding area at the Humane Society of Warren County. Our donation of fence materials assisted Ben and his group in the enhancement of a facility dedicated to the compassionate care of abandoned, abused, and homeless pets. Hercules Fence is proud to have partnered with the Boy Scouts of America and the Human Society of Warren County on this important project.
