ARC would like to extend our thanks to Olivia Marino and congratulate her on her Girl Scout Gold Award Project conducted at ARC on November 7, 2014. Olivia who belongs to Troop 2854, Heart of the Hudson, was accompanied by fellow girl scouts Kiera McCarthy and Julia D'Innocenzo and Katie Sosa who is a North Salem high school classmate.
Olivia demonstrated proper oral hygiene to our Comida (food pantry) patrons, made up a brochure in both English and Spanish that explains the benefits of proper oral hygiene and handed out "goodie bags" of oral hygiene products which she had collected from local dentists.
Throughout the year, ARC accepts donations of and distributes personal hygiene "care kits" to clients. Her brochure will now be included in all our care kits.
Her efforts were greatly appreciated by ARC and by the people who benefitted from her efforts.
