Powell Girl Scouts earn Bronze Award with CareCuts

Susan EspirituOur Town Youth, Powell

The Bronze Award is the highest honor that a Girl Scout Junior can earn, in which girls in grades 4-5 take on projects that make a positive impact in their community. To earn the Bronze Award, Girl Scouts must complete a project that addresses a community need and requires at least 20 hours of planning and implementation.

Girl Scouts from the Powell area, Morgan Griffin, Allison Whitehead and Hayden Schmidt, worked with CareCuts to earn their Bronze Award.

CareCuts is a nonprofit organization that provides goods and services to the less fortunate and people without homes. CareCuts provides free haircuts, while also helping the people get IDs, jobs and housing placements.

Morgan, Hayden and Allison volunteered at CareCuts, sorting clothing and items for those in need. In addition, they had a lemonade stand where the community could donate household items.

These Girl Scouts took all donated items and made boxes that will be given to families who find new housing through CareCuts.

I feel confident these young leaders will continue to build community with projects to enrich and empower others as they earn their Silver and Gold Awards in the years to come.

All of us have a story and I want to tell yours! Send them to susan@knoxtntoday.com
