Junior Girl Scout Troop 707 received their Bronze Award
Junior Girl Scout Troop 707, comprised of 16 scouts from East Providence, Seekonk, and Rehoboth, spent 10 months working on their Bronze Award Project and recently received their Bronze Award. The Bronze Award is the highest honor a Girl Scout Junior can achieve and includes a project that contributes to the community in a direct and meaningful way. They named their project 'Project Adoption' and their goal was to minimize impediments to pet adoption. The scouts reached out to local schools, community businesses, and nonprofit organizations to get permission to put in place pet supply donation collection boxes that the scouts would monitor. The scouts sewed and decorated 50 bags to give new pet owners that they then filled with the donations made by our generous community members. The bags full of items were given to the Rhode Island Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RISPCA) and Save One Soul Animal Rescue for distribution to new pet owners. Thank you to the 25 donation sites including East Providence Schools, Seekonk Schools, Rumford Pet Center, Petvalu, Petco Seekonk, the Newman YMCA, and thank you to everyone who donated to this project! We are excited to see what these young leaders will do next!
