A major component of a Gold Award project is its sustainability, so we love hearing how Anna and her sister Paige are continuing this work!
Girl Scout alum Anna Jegierski was home from Alfred State College for winter break and continued to spread the word and Take Action for Danny’s Helping Hands.
Danny’s Helping Hands was part of Anna’s 2019 Gold Award project and has been serving the students at Alden Middle School since the Fall of 2018.
Recently, Anna discussed her project and collected 4 large boxes of hygiene products that were generously donated by the Alden Garden Club. She then delivered the items to the Alden Middle School for use by students in need. A hygiene cabinet and bank account were established as part of the project, and both benefit students who are being bullied due to lack of good personal hygiene.
Anna has been receiving help with carrying on this project from her sister, Paige, an Ambassador Girl Scout currently working towards her own Gold Award Project. Anna is happy that she still receives support for Danny’s Helping Hands from the kind and generous community of Alden. Anna shared her thanks for the ladies of the Alden Garden Club!
