Seventh Graders Earn Silver Award with Volunteering, Blanket Donation Project

Troop 455 members Clare, LeeAllyn, Reagan and Anne, seventh graders at Our Lady of the Valley Catholic School, recently earned the Girl Scout Silver Award for their project Serving the Homeless and Touching Souls. The girls held a blanket drive at their church and donated the blankets to the homeless. They also volunteered by serving dinner at Firehouse 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.
