Leading like Girl Scouts, Troop 20924 of the Luna Service Unit took action to create and donate dog toys to Dezzy's Second Chance Animal Rescue. These G.I.R.L.s researched online for ways to make home-made dog toys. Deciding upon one, they then re-purposed a box of T-shirts that were left over from a past event and made dog pull toys.





   

Congrats to Troop 30724 of Sea Star Service Unit for earning their Bronze Award. As part of their Bronze Award's Take Action Project, the girls worked hard to purchase and donate four Kuranda dog beds and one window A/C unit while also having two more window units donated to Nala's New Life Rescue in Palm City.

Through giving back to their community, The G.I.R.L.s learned that a little hard work and perseverance can go a long way and bring smiles to many faces.
