Girl Scouts Start Off New Year By Helping Local Animal Rescue

Reilly and Emelia recently went to PetSmart and purchased dog food, puppy food, guinea pig food and guinea pig bedding to donate to TEARS on behalf of Troop 536. After hearing on the news that TEARS was in dire need of food and other items for the 200 animals they currently house, the girls decided to take immediate action instead of waiting for their cookie proceeds. The troop had planned to use some of their cookie proceeds from the current sale to help this organization and the Birmingham Humane Society. But with needs so pressing, the troop decided to help TEARS now.
