Girls from Girl Scout Troop 70294, located in Wheatfield, recently presented Hawk Creek Wildlife Center with a check for $370.

The troop held a garage sale and bake sale last summer to benefit the animals at Hawk Creek Wildlife Center.

Eight of the 16 members of the troop were on hand for the check presentation, and were given a tour of the facilities at Hawk Creek to see first hand the animals they were able to help.

The girls earned a Journey badge and their Bronze Award for their planning and execution of the garage sale/bake sale. The Bronze Award is the highest award a Junior Girl Scout can earn.

Troop leader, Julie Mills, said, "I am so proud of all the hard work the girls put in on this project. From them voting on who to help to planning and executing the garage sale, the girls worked together as a team. Each girl did at least 20 hours of work toward this end goal. Their enthusiasm for helping the animals is contagious."

Hawk Creek Wildlife Center is one of the largest not-for-profit educational outreach and raptor rehabilitation centers in New York state. They are a volunteer-driven organization that receives no state or federal funds.
