Rachel Scott and Alyson Armentrout are 7th grade Cadette Girl Scouts in Sugar Land, Texas. For their Silver Award project, they chose to partner with A Shelter for Cancer Families to collect books, games, puzzles, art supplies, and gift cards to be used by families staying in housing provided by the organization.
The goal of the Silver Award is to organize and run a project that makes a positive and sustainable impact on the community. Both girls have had family members touched by cancer, and they immediately knew that they wanted to choose an organization that supports cancer patients and their families. Rachel became aware of the mission of ASCF after losing her dad to sarcoma in November 2017. Her heart was touched by the stories she heard about ASCF families traveling the same journey she had experienced herself for so many months. After talking to Aly, the girls committed to developing a project supporting this amazing organization, not only with tangible items that would help families spend quality time together and worry less about expenses, but also by educating their Sugar Land community about the ASCF and its mission.
A Shelter for Cancer Families is both thrilled and honored to have been selected as the recipient of Rachel and Aly's hard work and effort.
