TOWNSEND — Brownie Troop 31100 is working on the “Try It” badge for “Citizens Near & Far.”
They decorated cans donated by Hannaford to be used as “change cans” to collect spare change between now and December. This service project is to demonstrate that every little bit helps; that even loose change can make a difference in the community.
Troop leaders Monica Kleeman and Andrea Powers said the troop voted on where in Townsend to make a difference.
The choice was to donate the money to the Townsend Veterinary Hospital, which in turn is donating it to the Tiny Tigers Feline Rescue organization in Groton.
There are currently three kittens (from the same litter) who have congenital eye problems and need surgery. The three kittens have been named Savannah, Samantha and Samwise.
The Townsend Veterinary Hospital will be providing the much-needed surgery and care for these very tiny patients. The Brownie Girl Scouts are very excited, knowing that their efforts will help these littlest cats.
The Brownies decorated their containers with brightly-colored stickers. And each can has the label “Brownies Can Make A Difference In Our Community! Troop 31100.”
If you see one of these cans, you now know the story. And maybe you’ll be willing to help, too. — Sandra Lord
