Girls in the Milton 5th-grade Junior Girl Scout Troop No. 74135 recently conducted their second annual drive to benefit the Milton Animal Shelter.
Members made and sold animal-themed jewelry and zipper pulls, decorated drop boxes for donations throughout the town, and conducted doorstep drives for pet supplies in their own neighborhoods.
Thanks to the generosity of many people, the drive was a huge success, said troop mother Janet Tierney.
The girls visited the shelter last week to drop off the donations, and have decided to continue their efforts, she said. Anyone interested in supporting the cause can buy the troop’s craft items at the farmers market, which is held every Thursday from 1 to 6 p.m. on Wharf Street in Milton.
