 Carmen B Silver Project


Carmen B. of Mansfield, PA learned how to knit hats for her Girl Scout Silver Award project so she could donate them to the American Cancer Society. The 33 hats made took Carmen 4-5 hours each. She attached a personal note to each hat for the recipient explaining her project for Girl Scouts and sending cancer patients hope and prayers.
