Girl Scouts collecting donations for animal shelter


Girl Scout Troops 2425 and 2510 are collecting donations for Animal Friends of the Valleys this Sunday, December 6, at the Lodge Tree-Lighting Festival. The girls will accept donations between 4 and 7 p.m.

Donation items needed for the shelter include:

  • IAMS dog or cat food
  • Kitty litter
  • Blankets and towels
  • Kong toys and peanut butter for afternoon treats
  • Laundry detergent (HE type)
  • Bleach
  • Dish detergent (not antibacterial)
  • 34-gallon black trash bags/leaf bags for the over-sized garbage cans on site
  • Interior and exterior clocks
  • Stand-up vacuums with bags

Velour blankets (These are not only comfy for the animals but do not capture the hair like fleece does. don’t weigh as much as a wet towel, which speeds laundry times.)
