The day is finally here. I have put together 250 disaster preparedness kits for seniors of Sierra Madre as my Girl Scout Gold Award Project. I am ready to distribute them tomorrow morning at the Wellness Fair at Memorial Park.
The event runs from 9 a.m.-noon, so come early and get your bag! I look forward to meeting you at my booth and sharing my project with you. For those of you who haven't read my past blogs, I am a junior at La Salle High School and have been a Girl Scout since Kindergarten. I have chosen to do this project for personal reasons. I wanted to give back to my community as Sierra Madre has been such a great place to grow up. After the windstorm in December, we were left without power for 7 days. We have many seniors on our cul de sac who were cold and left in the dark. My grandparents have been ill over the past year and I felt what better project than this to help the elderly? I look forward to distributing these kits and hopefully bringing a smile to the many seniors in Sierra Madre!
