For many, the leadership skills, organizational skills, and sense of community and commitment that come from "going for the Gold" set the foundation for a lifetime of active citizenship. Gold Award projects fulfill needs in the community. The organizations the girls completed projects for include; University of Michigan Hospital 6B Acute Care Unit (Polly Washabaugh), St. Joseph Parish (Kristie Duve & Chantal Singer), Ele’s Place (Carly Glahn), Father Pat Jackson House (Hailey Sheats) and St. Louis Center (Lynn Metz). The troop received donations from the Michigan Pain Specialists and the Dexter Knight Columbus to help with the cost of their Gold Award projects.
