2016 Silver Award Projects in Progress

09905pOur troop has three Cadette’s currently working on their Silver Awards – the highest award that a Cadette can earn.  The project itself is meant to “make the world a better place”.  Cadette’s need to also plan for sustainability in their projects.  They also have to measure the project impact on their community – knowing their goals, target audience, and developing success indicators.  Projects of this nature require different lengths of time from start to finish, however it is suggested that each Silver Award project include a minimum of 50 hours to complete.  Keep in mind that quality is more important that quantity.

2015 Hawaii Food Bank Food Drive

For the past four years, Alexis Cacabelos has helped her Uncle Wes Perreira in getting food and monetary donations for families in need.  This time, she inspired her fellow girl scouts to be involved in the annual food drive which was held on Saturday, April 18, 2015.  The girls met at Kukui Grove’s Kmart location and spent their day at the store’s front entrance gathering up donations to help Kauai’s families in need.  For more information on the Hawaii Food Bank, Kauai Branch, click on this link.
