TRUCKEE, Calif. and#8212; Girl Scout Troop 116 completed their Bronze Award, the highest award granted at the Junior Girl Scout level. The troop had numerous ideas for their community service effort and ultimately decided they wanted to work with the Humane Society of Truckee-Tahoe. They completed a number of prerequisites before starting the Bronze Award project. This included two Junior Girl Scout badges, a Girl Scout Sign of the Star badge and a Junior Aide Patch. The Girl Scouts then met with a Humane Society representative to establish the girls would paint donation barrels for the Pet Pantry, a program to help Truckee-Tahoeand#8217;s animals in need. The barrels are used to collect pet food donations at various locations for families who canand#8217;t currently afford to keep their four-legged family members. These donation barrels are located at Mickeyand#8217;s Pet Shop, Pet Station, Scraps and Tails by the Lake. The Bronze Award took each girl 15 hours to complete, with the hope their efforts will help local families for a lifetime. Woof.
