Silver Award Spotlight: "Masks for the Community"

Girl Scout Cadettes Penelope, Phoebe and Quinnlyn of Girl Scout Troop 73 have earned the Silver Award through their project titled “Masks for the Community!”

The three love animals and knew they wanted to assist animals in some way, so when COVID-19 arose, the girls decided to help those who help the animals by volunteering their time to make protective equipment. The girls learned to sew two different types of masks: one for everyday wear and another type with medical grade materials sewn in for a higher level of safety and donated the washable and reusable masks to the Virginia Beach SPCA.

The girls also created informational brochures about protection from viruses and how to make masks and distributed the brochures throughout the community.

Thanks for helping those who help our furry friends, Penelope, Quinnlyn and Phoebe!
