Save money and help SAVE
Submitted By Susan Saigusa
Girl Scouts Kimberly Saigusa and Sydney Fujioka, both 9th graders and Senior Girl Scouts with Troop Number 61335 in Fremont, decided to make a difference. As a project to achieve the Girl Scout Silver Award, they are organizing a garage sale on Saturday, August 13. Funds realized from this event will be used to purchase baby items such as baby food and snacks, feeding spoons, bottles, formula, diapers, baby wipes, clothing and blankets for those seeking shelter, help and protection at Safe Alternatives to Violent Environments (SAVE).
The Silver Award is the highest award a Girl Scout Cadette can earn. There are three levels of awards in Girl Scouts. The Bronze Award for Girl Scout Juniors (grades 4 and 5); Silver Award for Girl Scout Cadettes (grades 6 through 8), and Gold Award for Girl Scout Seniors and Ambassadors (grades 9 through 12). Steps to achieve the Silver Award take several years and require community service projects and leadership hours (about 50 hours). The Silver Award Project can be accomplished by an individual scout or in small groups. Projects address a community issue, challenge a girl's leadership and organizational skills, and make a lasting change to life in her community outside of Girl Scouting. Silver Award projects must be completed by September 30 of 9th grade.
All are invited to help to come by for some great deals and help the community too.
