Nov. 2 HH Hero

<p> </p> <p>Eight members of Troop 51445 Girl Scouts of Oregon and Southwest Washington spent the last six months making blankets, hats and pillows to donate to the Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep Foundation, which helpes parents who are grieving the loss of an infant. The troop’s Bronze Award project was called “Hats and Blankets for Babies.”</p> <p>The girls met with their contact at NILMDTS, Sonja Yearsley, on Oct. 4 to hand over their handmade gifts. "I'm blown away by the work and talent that went into making all of thse blankets and hats," said Yearsley. "I was nearly speechless when I saw them. I'm sure many will benefit."</p> <p>Girl Scouts USA suggests that girls working on the Bronze Award, the highest award a Girl Scout in the fourth and fifth grades can earn, complete a minimum of 20 hours of volunteer time toward a service project that will make a difference in their community.</p> <p> Pictured are, from left, Amanda Humphrey, Hannah Walker, Dalene Powell-Carasco, Breckyn Mecham, Emily Winebarger, Jancee Skinner and Shayla Miller, all of Hermiston. Also participating in the project was Natalia Moe of Hermiston.</p>
