Girl Scout Troop 45878 comprises of 19 girls, ranging from 9 to 10 years in age. The majority of the girls participated in the event, either by baking and/or working the bake sale table.

When asked about the bake sale, Christine replied “I thought that this was an incredible event. I am very pleased that we raised over $500 for the HFG rescue.” Christine’s daughter Alyssa concurred, adding “I liked that I could be with the dogs. I think it was the best idea ever.” Girls Scout Brooke Arnold stated “I thought that this was a fantastic experience. I had a great time seeing all the dogs and all the people that donated.”
