Silver Award for Rachel Valentine
Verde Valley Kids Against Hunger Director Karen Freeman and Silver Award Girl Scout Rachel Valentine.
Verde Valley Kids Against Hunger Director Karen Freeman and Silver Award Girl Scout Rachel Valentine.

Rachel Valentine has been attending girl scouts for nine years; she has been in Troop 2687 for four years.

Some of her duties has been the troop president for three years. She is hard-working and very determined. She is admired by our troop for all she has helped with.

This year as a cadet she earned the highest award for cadets, the Silver Award. As part of the Silver Award she was to choose a service project that would make a difference in the life of others.

She chose to have a book drive and give them to the organization Kids Against Hunger, an organization that gives food and supplies to under-privileged people in Haiti.

Karen Freeman, the director of the organization, was happy to partner with her by if shipping the books Rachel collected to Haiti for their new school. The books she collected were mostly picture books and books the kids could relate to.

Rachel's goal was to collect 500 hundred books, she surpassed her goal by getting 703 books. She wants to give a special thanks to Stephanie Earl, and Leslie Kuntz for their generous donation to her project and to her Girl Scout troop 2687 that helped her throughout her project.

She's hoping to travel to Haiti in a few years to help the children and see their school house. She also wants to thank her leaders Angelique Osorio and Jan Davidson for their connection to Kids Against Hunger and for all their support
