Cadette Girl Scouts Evelyn Nichols, Lizbeth Cruz-Araujo and Yaretzi Cruz-Araujo of Girl Scout Troop 64 recently earned their Silver Awards by working together to build and install an outdoor food pantry at St. Theresa Catholic Church. The girls learned that many college students struggle with food insecurity and so they chose to build a pantry that would be accessible to students. Evelyn is the daughter of Marcella and Damion Nichols of Meherrin and Lizbeth and Yaretzi are the daughters of Lizbeth Araujo-Vazquez and Victor Cruz of Farmville.
