Helping Foster Kids in Harris County
The goal of this Girl Scout Silver Award project was to make foster kids feel more cared and accepted. We want to help make a difficult situation better. We collected and distributed stuffed animals to the Harris County Family Court Judges so that they could give one to each newly adopted child in their courtroom. We also collect small pieces of luggage and formal wear.
This was a Girl Scout Silver Award project by Megan Carson and Ella Malinsky. With the help of our fearless mentor, Melanie Bragg, who is an attorney and author, we connected with local judges who work with foster kids everyday.
As part of our project we also volunteered at a non-profit organization called BEAR. They provide the bare necessities to Child Protective Services (CPS) workers so they can help meet the basic needs of the children they are working with.
