Rachel Broudy, a Girl Scout from West Nyack, New York, earned the Girl Scout Gold Award for her creative community service at The Breast Center at Nyack Hospital.

Rachel Broudy of West Nyack, a member of Pearl River Troop 40578 Girl Scouts Heart of the Hudson, recently completed the requirements to receive the Girl Scout Gold Award.

Rachel’s project, “Pillows for Pink,” involved raising funds for materials to create heart-shaped pillows for distribution to breast cancer patients in Nyack Hospital’s The Breast Center. “I wanted to help breast cancer patients feel more comfortable,” Broudy says. In addition to raising funds for the project, Broudy coordinated a group of volunteers to help decorate the multi-colored pillows.

The Girl Scout Gold Award honors scouts age 14 to 18 who complete a project that encompasses organizational, leadership, and networking skills, and sets the foundation for a lifetime of active citizenship. The project fulfills a need within each girl's community (whether local or global), creates change, and is something that becomes ongoing. “Pillows for Pink” met these strict requirements and had the added benefit of bringing joy to women receiving care at Nyack Hospital.
