Caroling for Cats and Canines

Troop 145 of Pizitz Middle School earned the Bronze Award for their “Caroling for Cats and Canines” project. The Girl Scouts went caroling through neighborhoods and collected donations for the Greater Birmingham Humane Society. These items included dog biscuits, dog toys, pet food, cat toys, towels, blankets and pillows. In addition to helping the humane society, Troop 145’s project also raised awareness about needs of abandon animals in the community. Members of this troop included Olivia, Natalie, Bailey, Lyndsey, Kanika and Dawn.

The Girl Scout Bronze Award is the highest award a Girl Scout Junior can earn. This award recognizes that a Girl Scout Junior has gained the leadership and planning skills required to follow through with a project that makes a positive difference in her community.
