HOWELL TOWNSHIP, NJ – Like a scene out of the movie Pay it Forward, the Howell Township Police Department took a donation from Girl Scout Troop 60771 and paid it forward.
The girls donated some of their cookie sale funds to help the furry friends over at the Howell Police Department along with other goodies for the dogs that walk the blue line.
“We’d like to thank Riley and Meghan and all the girls from Howell Girl Scout Troop 60771 for their donation to our K-9 unit. Both girls used proceeds from cookie sales to make a monetary donation, as well as food and other animal items to the Monmouth County SPCA. Personalized dog bowls were given to all of our K-9 pups,” the Howell Police Department said today. “Our K-9 officers payed it forward by tripling her amount and giving a check for $600 to the SPCA on behalf of the above girls and their troop.
Ross Licitra, Executive director of the MCSPCA, was there to accept their donation.”
The girls received a Certificate of Appreciation from the Monmouth County Commissioners for their job well done.
