Going for Gold: Warm Hands

Jules Struckgold award centennial logoJules, a Girl Scout Ambassador from Concord, started an initiative to bring relief to Syrian refugees displaced from their homes as a result of the Syrian Civil War.

Thousands of refugees have fled their homes to avoid the violence, and many have evacuated to refugee camps in Turkey. These refugees face a lack of basic resources and must endure cold winters and nights with only the items they could carry from their Jules Struck 2homes.

Jules coordinated knitters around the country to make blankets, clothes, hats and more for refugees at the Al Salam School in Reyhanli, Turkey. The knitters also wrote a short note of well wishes to go with each item. Together, the knitters donated over 150 pounds of gear, and the Karam Foundation has transported and distributed these items to the refugees.

Through the Warm Hands initiative, Jules has learned that she has the capability and confidence to make a significant impact.

We are so proud of Jules for helping families across the globe and for demonstrating the Girl Scout traits of courage, confidence, and character!
