OAKHURST – Coarsegold Girl Scout Troop 3702 will be collecting supplies to help the EMC SPCA in caring for homeless animals in the mountain area.
The event will take place on Saturday, June 9, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Oakhurst Feed and Pet Supply, 40119 Enterprise Drive.
The Girl Scouts say they want to help protect homeless animals in the mountains near Oakhurst, and agreed that collecting new items for pets would help the Eastern Madera County SPCA animal shelter, scheduled to open by the end of this year.
The community is asked to drop off new items such as Dawn dish soap, paper towels, gift cards, leashes, collars, toys and grooming supplies.
As part of the Troop’s Girl Scout Bronze Award and Community Service Project, the girls partnered with Eastern Madera County Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (EMC SPCA) and worked closely with Education Representative Maria Manning-Chapman. Their goal is to collect as many donations as possible before the opening of the Eastern Madera County SPCA facility.
The Girl Scout Bronze Award is the highest honor a Girl Scout Junior can achieve. To obtain the award, a Girl Scout must be in fourth or fifth grade and complete 20 hours of team building, community exploration and project implementation.
