For his eagle project, Hutchens chose the A.C.A.C. organization, which removes children from abusive situations. This is done rather quickly and the children leave their homes with nothing. Hutchens prepared emergency kits for children in order for them to have the bare necessities during the difficult transition period. He had scouts and their mothers sew drawstring bags and then fill them with a toothbrush, toothpaste, comb, shampoo, soap, lotion and a toy. He prepared just under 200 bags for the organization.
