It was an exciting day for Girl Scout Cadette Isabella Trevino, Troop 24987, as she earned her Silver Award. She guided 11 kids, grades 4-8, in cutting and sewing almost 60 pediatric surgical caps to be donated to Harris Health Systems (HHS). Isabella’s organization made it possible for the group to complete so many caps in 2 hours.
HHS was there with their media department filming the process and will post the ‘how to’ video on their website. This will allow others to learn the process and continue Isabella’s service.
A big thank you to Garden Oaks neighbor Susan Kostelecky for introducing Isabella to the idea and for the use of her sewing machines and other accessories for the Silver Award.
