Girl Scout Gold Award Project Benefits Troops

"When deciding on a project for her prestigious Girl Scout Gold Award, Wake Forest resident Lauren Helms wanted to do something for the troops. Helms recounts, 'I remember being in the fifth grade on 9/11 and my teacher coming in the classroom crying and pointing at the TV. It was scary as a kid and I didn't really understand what was going on.'"


"Over the Labor Day holiday, Helms presented the children's cards to Patti Elliott, president of the local chapter of Blue Star Mothers of America. The Blue Star Mothers organization will assist in getting the cards distributed to the troops. Additionally, Helms presented two paintings based on the cards. In each painting, she created a collage of the children's designs. One, called "A Child's Prayer," shows a little girl kneeling to say her bedtime prayers on a quilt collage, and the other, called "Thank You," is simply a collage of designs."
