Two Incline Village girl scouts pay it forward
October 9, 2013
The Silver Award is the highest award that a Cadet Girl Scout can earn.
To earn the award the girls have to come up with a community service project that makes a positive and lasting impact on the local community.
The “Pay it Forward” project is a Care Package program for local senior citizens that are currently receiving Meals On Wheels, here in Incline.
The care packages contain non-perishable house hold items such as; toilet paper, paper towels, personal wet wipes, toothpaste, shampoo and body wash.
The two girl scouts worked all summer with Sierra Senior Services, IVGID Senior Programs and Raley’s of Incline Village to put this project into motion.
Raley’s helped by selling pre-bagged care package items for $10 from Setp. 25-Oct. 9.
They built a display of the bags in the center of the store near the check out stands.
Once all the care package items are collected, the Incline High School Key Club has agreed to store the items at the high school and put the bags together for once a month delivery to our local Seniors.
This project is really about people helping people.
The girls just made it easier by creating this project and bringing all the organizations together. Incline is a caring and supportive community already, this just makes it that much easier to be supportive of friends and neighbors.
