Sophie Bowring revamps wardrobe for Girl Scout Silver Award | Local News
Sophie’s vision involved organizing the items there, new paintings on the walls, and throwing donations for clothes she deemed appropriate for college kids. However, this vision required funds.
Sophie did her research and developed a budget of $ 300 to complete the project. In December 2020, she hosted a fundraiser selling Christmas crafts and baked goods which were all made by Sophie.
She spent over 40 hours preparing for the fundraiser. Sophie recruited two friends, Ava and Brookston, to help her with the sale, which took place outside due to pandemic guidelines.
While she had hoped to earn $ 300, due to the volume of crafts and baking she had available, Sophie won over $ 1,000. The hope she had for her project was turning into something real.
Once she realized that her budget for the project was larger than expected, she added to her plan (cabinets, shelves, inspirational messages on the walls, new privacy curtain for the cloakroom) , came up with the design concept for the closet and presented his final idea (paint colors, shelves, inspirational messages) for approval to Foster.
She also put flyers around the school and organized a clothing drive.
Sophie spent hours folding, sorting and washing all the clothes at a local laundromat.
