Food For Families

For her Silver Award project, Elizabeth of Troop 3620 of Chalkville wanted to assist the non-profit Food Pantry by helping them collect sturdy shelves, food donations and also help them relocate. Elizabeth met with the Food Pantry Director to discuss the needs and what changes need to take place. She enlisted volunteers from her community to assist her with this task. She received a donation of shelves from a local business, Famous Footwear and also worked with local libraries that were promoting a Food For Fines program. By earning her Silver Award, Elizabeth learned that she enjoys helping others and feels like she made a difference in her community. Elizabeth is a Freshman at Clay Chalkville High School.
