Troop 262 Provides Relief for Storm Victims

Troop 262 members Hannah, Ali, Haleigh, Alexus, Rachel, Sarah and Alyssa, students at Vernon Elementary School, earned their Bronze Award by helping those affected by the April 27 storm of 2011. The girls, with help from volunteers, provided relief for the victims by collecting and delivering basic supplies that they were without. The girls also created samples of emergency supply kits and did research on how to prepare for a natural disaster.

The Girl Scout Bronze Award is the highest award a Girl Scout Junior can earn. This award recognizes that a Girl Scout Junior has gained the leadership and planning skills required to follow through with a project that makes a positive difference in her community.
