Brittany Scott hopes that the generosity of the Corry community will help her achieve a Girl Scout badge.

Scott is a member of Girl Scout Troop 30765 in Corry, and she is working on her Silver Award.

For her project, Scott is holding a new toy drive Tuesday from 3 to 5 p.m. at the Corry Public Library, 117 W. Washington St.

Donations of new toys, books, puzzles and stuffed animals for children infant to 18 years old will be accepted.

Scott will then donate the toys to Shriners Hospitals for Children in Erie.

“All of the toys must be in their original package,” Scott said. “Stuffed animals must have their original tags.”

The Silver Award is the second highest award, next to the Gold Award, a Cadette Girl Scout can achieve. Only Girl Scouts age 11 through 14 or in grades six through nine can achieve a Silver Award.

The Silver Award symbolizes accomplishments in Girl Scouting and community involvement as the Scout works to better her life and lives of others.

Scott, 14, is the daughter of Robert and Trisha Scott. She will be in ninth grade through the Corry Area School District’s cyber program.

Scott has been in Scouting since she was 8 years old.
