The Penn Yan Junior Troop 590 needs the community's help to earn their Bronze Award. The Bronze Award is the highest award they can earn as a Junior Girl Scout.

The troop has elected to help the Yates County Humane Society by spending numerous hours volunteering at the shelter, making dog bones, dog toys and soliciting much needed items for the shelter.

The girl scouts handed out over 150 fliers featuring much needed items for the shelter to residents of Penn Yan last weekend. They will be returning this Saturday, May 21 at 9 a.m. to  pick up what will be donated.

Items needed by the Yates Humane Society are canned cat and dog food, cat and dog toys, Mr.Clean or Lysol (no Pine Sol), laundry detergent, dishwashing detergent, 13 gallon trash bags, paper towels, bleach, dryer sheets, cat litter, mops, and numerous office supplies to keep them running.

If you are able to help us out, please feel free to contact Barb at 315-694-7352.
