CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WCIA)– Some students are helping those who do not have masks.

An all-girl troop in the Boy Scouts of America was at Champaign Church of Christ. They were delivering over 2,000 masks for the community.

12-year-old Aurelie Gerini is in the troop working on her Eagle Project.

She chose to make masks for Feeding Our Kids and was able to get over 2,000 masks made. “I chose this project at the beginning of May when not many people had masks, but people needed masks and there was a shortage and I knew this would help the community that needed the masks more,” said Gerini.

They delivered them on Thursday. Gerini said she has spent over 120 hours completing the project.
