NICOWE Girl Scout Cadette Troop 258 earned its Silver Award by assisting the Heart, Love and Soul Food Pantry in Niagara Falls. Heart, Love and Soul offers many services to those in need, including a food pantry, dining hall, health services and day camps for children.
In order to earn their award, the Scouts worked more than 50 hours each, made hundreds of hats and scarves and donated over 100 pair of gloves, which they distributed to the patrons at Heart, Love and Soul. The troop donated 1,121 pounds of food they collected by holding a community food drive and also helped to sort the food and pack holiday boxes. The girls really enjoyed this heartfelt project. The Silver Award is the highest award a Cadette Girl Scout can achieve.
