A pair of local Girl Scouts recently dedicated their Gold Award projects to refurbishing key spaces at Door of Hope, a nonprofit organization in Pasadena that takes in homeless families and gives them a temporary place to stay and helps them get back on their feet to find employment and permanent housing.
With help from Megan Katerjian, Door of Hope’s executive director, and Maggie Niewoehner, the manager of donor relations, La Cañada Flintridge residents Allison Budde and Alexandra Ehrhart identified their projects and then got to work.
Budde refurbished an upstairs area that serves as an office and meeting space for staff and potential donors.
“The room was very dark, cluttered and overall just a depressing room to be in,” Budde said. “It only has one window, so it doesn’t have a lot of natural light.”
She’s developed an affinity for decorating rooms, she said, because of her participation as a part of the Junior Room Crew for the LCF-based organization Once Upon a Room, which goes to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles to decorate the rooms of sick kids with things they like to lift their spirits.
