Troop 2033 Silver Award Helping Homeless Animals
Three girls from Girl Scout Troop 2033 diligently worked to earn their Girl Scout Silver Award supporting The Animal Pad and TAPACT, an amazing dog shelter in San Diego. The Animal Pad gets dogs off the streets in Baja Mexico and Southern California. TAPACT is dedicated to ending the suffering, abuse, and exploitation of dogs through information, education, and advocacy locally and globally. The Silver Award Project involved making PVC Pipe Dog Feeders to be placed in Baja Mexico, educating kids in Mexico about what it takes to care for a dog by creating educational coloring sheets, educating people how to find reputable places to get a pet with Public Service Announcements, and creating a video library to support the shelter. Each girl worked 50 - 57 hours on the project and used Troop funds that were raised from cookie and nut sales. The girls were challenged to do new things and they learned about dogs, teamwork, and the strength of working with another strong volunteer organization. One team member even adopted a dog from the shelter! Posted October 2020

Troop 2357 Bronze Award Making Neighborhoods Safer
Girl Scout Troop 2357 was concerned about all the cars they saw driving through stop signs in their neighborhood while walking to school, so they decided to quantify the issue and encourage all drivers in 4S Ranch to come to a complete stop at stop signs for their Bronze Award Project. Each girl collected data at four different intersections on the North side of 4S Ranch. Out of the 10,983 cars observed, 48.8% did rolling stops, 37.8% stopped, and 13.4% did not stop. They spoke with a Sheriff Deputy to further understand the issue and worked with the neighborhood HOA to get approval for placing signs at the intersections to remind drivers to stop. Articles written by the girls are being published in neighborhood newspapers, magazines, and newsletters, as well as Social Media about this issue. Each girl worked over 20 hours on this project and used funds from nut and cookie sales to pay for the yard signs placed at the intersections. Posted October 2020
Troop 2033 Silver Award Monarch Butterflies
The Girl Scouts from Troop 2033 worked incredibly hard to bring awareness of the benefit of learning gardens and the preservation of monarch butterflies. They designed and built their "Monarch Motel" which they donated to Monterey Ridge Elementary School to use for many years to come as a hands on learning experience for their students to be a part of the conservation of monarch butterflies and their life cycle! Each girl spent between 50 to 61 hours to complete their award, and they used their cookie money to pay for all of the supplies for the "Monarch Motel" and Life Cycle Sign. Posted October 2020
