Samantha Albala Earns Gold Award
For Immediate Release January 18, 2008
Samantha Albala, the first recipient of the gold award in Oakland, N.J. in over twenty years, has completed her “Save The Arts” Girl Scouts Gold award project with the help of over 200 Girl Scouts from several North Jersey communities, Michaels Interstate Mall store in Ramsey, N.J., Palisades Mall, Washington Mutual Bank, It’s Academic of Northbrook, Illinois, Colart America, Inc. of Piscataway, N.J., Meca Brands America of Livingston, N.J., Daler Rawney of Cranbury, N.J. and Meadowbrook Inventions, Inc. of Bernardsville, N.J.
Over 15,000 pieces of arts supplies were donated to the YCS Foundation of Hackensack and other organizations in Northern New Jersey to further their dedication to keeping arts programs in full swing.
As part of the program, Samantha ran consumer power programs for over 200 Girl Scouts in Northern New Jersey, who in turn donated arts supplies for this drive. Companies were also given the opportunity to participate in this drive, and several chose to participate and are mentioned in this press release.
Lisa Napolitano, troop leader for one of Oakland, N.J.’s middle school troops, stated, “I just wanted to let you know that your shopping program was a great success! I don’t think many of the leaders would have attempted the consumer power badge on their own.”
Kathleen Mongon of the YCS Foundation in Hackensack, N.J. stated, “Thank you again for the additional arts supplies for the children. We really appreciate your hard work and dedication to the YCS kids!”
Samantha is a member of Girl Scouts troop number 207, which consists of High School students making a mark on their community. Samantha, a candidate for the Congressional Youths Gold award, is awaiting admission decisions for the freshman class of several colleges.
