We're starting off the week proud of Troop 2897 for presenting their Silver Award project to Refugee Support Services. While a simple concept, the project will live on and help refugees for years to come. What a great way to become part of the Charlotte community! ... See MoreSee Less
Troop 2897 Cadettes present their Silver Award to Rachel Humphries of Refugee Support Services. The girls presented flip charts, posters, trifold boards, and bulletin boards. Each of these were filled with information such as calling 911, metric to standard conversions, and saying please and thank you. The bulletin boards are holidays and seasons throughout the year such as Fourth of July, Spring, and Valentine's Day. All these things will help the refugees learn about the things and living day to day that we take for granted. While a simple concept, the project will live on and help refugees from countries like Bhutan, Burma, Congo and Syria. Rachel was so happy that the girls did this project for this organization. The girls learned a lot about what a refugee is, where they come from and why they flee as well as the full and lengthy process they face before they arrive. This project will hopefully not only teach them but also help them become part of our Charlotte community.
