Our Lady of the Valley Students Earn Silver Award for Project Caring for Homeless

Troop 30455 members Zoe, Victoria and Kayla, seventh graders at Our Lady of the Valley Catholic School, recently earned the Girl Scout Silver Award for their project Sharing the Light of Christ, Cookies and Smiles with the Homeless. The girls collected toiletries, blankets, socks and even Girl Scout cookies from their church and passed them out to the men at Firehouse Shelter. They also volunteered by cooking and serving food at the shelter. 

The Girl Scout Silver Award is the highest award a Girl Scout Cadette (grades 6-8) can earn. This award symbolizes a Girl Scout Cadette's accomplishments in Girl Scouting and community activities as she matures and works to better her life and the lives of others.
