Emily Duro and Taylor Mcleod, Junior Juliettes, teamed up to earn their Bronze Award.
To do so, they set up a collection of new books at their school, Sheafe Road Elementary in Wappingers Falls, NY, to donate to the pediatrics department at Vassar Brothers Medical Center in Poughkeepise, NY.
Their goal was 50 books… but, they collected 404!! The director and nurses in the department were so happy with the generous gift.
We talked to them about their project and their success:
Why did you choose this project?
We wanted to do something with kids and find a way to help them
What made your project so successful?
We worked really hard. We made posters for our school, went to classrooms to tell the other students, and made regular announcements over the loudspeaker.
What was your favorite part of the project?
Crushing our goal of 50 books and collecting 404 books!
What did you learn from earning your Bronze Award?
If you stick with something, you can go beyond your goals.
We congratulate them on super awesome Bronze Award project!
