  • Ana (14) and Sarah (14), Girl Scouts from Troop 35 of St. Catherine of Siena School, have made stuffed animals for the children at the Community Crisis Center as part of their Silver Award project. The intention of these cuddly creatures is to provide warmth, comfort and security to children who have experienced trauma. The girls presented their adorable animals to Lea Conrad, Children's Program Coordinator. Their kindness and support is greatly appreciated. If you would like the directions to make one of these stuffed animals please click the following link(s).
