For my Girl Scout troop’s Bronze Award project, we are building a sort of ‘play house’ for the cats and kittens at our local humane society. We decided to do this, of all other things, because we have worked for the Humane Society before and it was very fun. The people are very nice, understand our good intentions, and help us as much as they can so that we can succeed.
We also choose to do this for our project, because we love animals- especially cats- and want to help these homeless animals as much as we can.
We have discussed it, and found that building this play house would not come cheaply. Our troop went to speak with a local hardware store and they said that the only way they could donate materials to us would include us filling out paperwork, and would take about a couple weeks, which was after we needed to get the Bronze Award done so that we may bridge to be Cadettes.
Instead, we bought some of the ‘scraps’ from the hardware store, which were much cheaper than actual measured pieces of wood. Other than that, the other things we have used have all been generously given to us by our troop leader- such as paint, nails and other such tools. We thank our Troop leaders so much for the effort they had put in to help us with completing our award.
