As part of earning their Bronze Award, Girl Scouts Lyla, Gabriella, Natalie, and Ella from GSWPA Troop 52544 made no-sew fleece blankets for dogs at a local animal shelter, South Hills Pet Rescue.
The girls began their project by inviting the owner of the animal shelter to join one of their meetings. They asked questions and learned that South Hills Pet Rescue is always in need of dog blankets, so they chose to fill the need by making and donating no-sew fleece blankets to help the shelter.
In addition to providing the shelter with blankets, the girls organized a neighborhood pet supply drive for the shelter. The fliers for their drive also included information about the animal shelter as a community resource and instructions on making the no-sew blankets. This way, the community could continue to support the shelter and other animals in need. The troop distributed the flyers in their neighborhoods and on social media.
Congratulations to these Girl Scouts for earning their Bronze Award and making their corner of the world a better place!
Troop 52544 is a Junior troop with 9 girl members and 3 troop volunteers in McMurray, PA.
