The girls of multi-level Troop 65659 wanted to reward and support those in our community who help homeless animals. They selected Maxfund for Hometown Hero cookies this year. While they were there, they toured the cat shelter and gave the cats much needed love and attention. There are many, many cats at Maxfund in need of a loving home!
MaxFund provides emergency care and a home for injured animals until the owner is located or a suitable home is found. MaxFund is a TRUE no-kill shelter. They also provide low-cost vaccinations, pet food, and spay/neuter clinics for pets of low-resource families, and a Therapy Program. It takes pets to visit senior centers, the VA Hospital, and nursing homes.

Girl Scout earns Silver by Helping MaxFund with huge donations!
Courtney Coleman of Troop 918, has been working on her Girl Scout Silver award. On Sunday Nov 25th she delivered over 400 pounds of animal food as well as other items collected (beds, treats, leashes, gift bags, toys, etc) to the MaxFund, a no-kill animal shelter that relies solely on donations/grants from the community. The MaxFund is also going to be having its annual holiday party/fundraiser on December 8th and items she has made will also be used at the event to raise money.
In a season of giving, this Silver Award project (over 50 hours of community service) will help many animals in need and will continue to give throughout the year.
The Silver Award is the 2nd highest award a Girl Scout can earn.
Channel 9 and Channel 4 were there! Here are the links to the stories:
