Girl Scout, HollyAnne, of Troop 634 has created a district-wide phenomenon through her volunteer work with Color a Smile, a non-profit organization that focuses on distributing colored pictures to nursing homes, military troops overseas, and anyone in need of a smile.
“Color a Smile is a very fun way for kids to volunteer, and some of them don’t even know it, because they’re just having a lot of fun coloring,” said HollyAnne.
HollyAnne decided to work on a service project with her Girl Scout troop by coloring a ton of pictures, which ended up being distributed all over the nation.
For being a Caring kid, Hollyanne received an AmTrust Bank Kids Account funded with $150. And what did she do with the money? Exactly what any Girl Scout would do – she donated it all to Color a Smile to help with coloring supplies for volunteers!
