Girl Scout Daisy Troop #624 at Parker's North Star Academy selected the Cat Care Society (CCS) Nibbles & Kibbles Cat Food Bank for its annual community service project. The announcement is made by Diane Stoner, president of Cat Care Society, who says, "The donations filled most of the lower level meeting room area at the shelter and included cat food, litter, cat beds and other cat supplies. The Scouts even made toys for the Cat Care Society shelter kitties."
According to Stoner: "Nibbles & Kibbles provides food and cat litter for cats whose owners cannot provide food and litter for their pets because of a temporary financial setback. By providing temporary help for low-income families with pets, CCS helps owners avoid neglecting or abandoning their pets due to financial concerns. We're so very grateful for the Daisy Troop's support."
Mary C. Tate , troop leader, learned about Cat Care Society and Nibbles & Kibbles in the Girl Scout newsletter for troop leaders. Making the delivery of two carloads of donations were troop members Caitlin Tate (Mary's daughter) and India Choudhury. Cookie Chairperson Caroline Choudhury, India's Mom, assisted with the delivery. The girls also toured the shelter and Cat Clinic during their visit.
It All Starts With A Collection Box
CCS Volunteer Coordinator Jane Dorsey says, "It all starts with a collection box and a successful Nibbles & Kibbles Food Drives take off from there. Our theme is "Fighting Feline Famine" and we believe working with the Scouts provides a great educational experience, while at the same time serving an important unmet need in the community."
