Local Girl Scouts to Receive Gold Awards May 21

May 18, 2006

For her Girl Scout Gold Award Project, Brittany designed a coloring book for young children admitted to Los Angeles Children’s Hospital. The book’s theme, “My Stay at the Hospital”, was designed to help entertain patients during their hospital stay. Created by Brittany as an interactive coloring book, it encourages children to fill in their own personal medical record, their doctors and nurses names, what they ate for dinner, and more. The book includes hospital themed mazes, cross word puzzles, and numerous pages of pictures. Brittany solicited supplies from local businesses and created one hundred copies to give to the hospital.

Brittany has been a Girl Scout for twelve years. Currently a senior at La Cañada High School, Brittany plans to attend a University in the fall. She enjoys working at Club Libby Lu planning birthday parties for little girls. Outside of work and school, Brittany enjoys volunteer community service opportunities volunteering at the Glendale Humane Society and Children’s Educational Center. She also plans to volunteer at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles in the near future.

She would also like to thank all of the girls in Troop 616 for all the great knowledge and friendship they have shared with her, and to thank her mom and dad x for supporting her Girl Scouting throughout the years.

Stephanie Harris

To achieve her Gold Award, Stephanie worked with the Beeve Foundation For World Eye and Health Care. For two weeks every year, members from the Beeve Foundation travel to Fiji and provide over 1000 patients each with free eye-care, including cataract surgeries and cornea transplants. Stephanie collected almost 1,000 pairs of eye glasses by soliciting local stores, clubs, and organizations in the La Cañada Flintridge area. She then categorized, neutralized (determined the prescription for), labeled, and classified the glasses to be shipped to Fiji. Stephanie neutralized approximately 1,500 pairs of useable eyeglasses for the Beeve Foundation’s 2006 expedition.
