Troop 31033 Earns Bronze Award

Glen Iris Elementary School student and member of Girl Scout Troop 31033 Ashanti recently earned the Girl Scout Bronze Award for her clothing drive project. Her troop was pen pals with another Girl Scout Troop in Staten Island, NY, an area affected by Hurricane Sandy, so she wanted to do something to help. She collected donations from her church and sent them to those who needed them. Ashanti plans on holding another drive later this year.

The Girl Scout Bronze Award is the highest award a Girl Scout Junior (fourth and fifth grades) 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.
