On February 21st, Jayda and Aleah spent part of their Sunday organizing and sorting through some of their clothing to make a donation to benefit Kauai’s homeless as well as to garage sale and raise funds for their first dinner at KEO for the homeless. This was the start of their Silver Award Project.
They made their clothing delivery to KEO on February 23rd.
Alexis worked on her Silver Award Project and was featured in the March 31st Garden Island Newspaper.
April 1st was a great day! We received some very exciting news informing us of something we were waiting to hear about. Kyla received this email…
Since then, Kyla has been a busy member of the Convention 2017 Girl Planning Team. She will follow up at a later point in time with a blog post in order to tell us all about her experiences.
Alexis’ Silver Award project also included inspiring others as well as our troop to participate in the Hawaii Food Bank’s Food Drive on April 16th as well.
Kaytlen made a donation to the food drive too.
Britnee was busy with a few things as well. She made a donation of 34 stuffed animals to the Wilcox Health Foundation to benefit young children who are admitted to the hospital on April 13th.
Britnee also sent in a $500 donation which was made in her name by the Soroptimist International of Honolulu club as a result of her Soroptimist Violet Richardson Award.
Additionally, Britnee donated 15 books to the Heart of America Foundation via her Gift of Aloha Book Drive.
