Jenny Ryan decided to make the Sayre House of Hope part of her Silver Award for the Girl Scouts. She is a member of Troop 40587. Throughout the year she has set up boxes for household items and nonperishable food donations throughout the community. She also is spending time making baked goods, and craft projects to help the families that make use of the Sayre House of Hope as well as collecting donations. The Sayre House of Hope appreciates Jenny's efforts at helping our families during their time of medical crisis.
A bake sale hosted by the Information Services department on Guthrie’s Sayre Campus raised $892, which will be donated to the new Guthrie Veteran Patient Assistance Fund. Great work to the team, and thank you to everyone who donated or purchased baked goods.
