Three Cadettes from Troop 2326 received their Silver Awards at the Leader/Daughter Dinner in April. Birdy, Marshmellow and Squirrel (their Girl Scout camp names) chose to work with the Cherokee County Humane Society because of their love for animals. They learned that the Humane Society is a private agency completely separate from the County’s Animal Shelter. While the Animal Shelter receives government funds and grants, the Humane Society is a private organization, and was in need of funds and supplies.

The girls chose to raise awareness for the Humane Society by educating people to the Humane Society’s mission and their need for resources. They set up a booth at a local church and at other locations to promote the Humane Society. They contributed many hours to the project and were able to donate several car loads of supplies to the Humane Society.

Congratulations to these three girls for their great service project!
