AWARE



We are honored again to have Mrs. Colleen Harlow with Alliance of Wild Animal Rehabilitation and Education (AWARE) to be visiting the Troop meeting on November 15th.  
Mrs. Harlow will bring animals for display and education to the troop meeting.  
As one of our service project for the year, troop members are encouraged to contribute one or more of the items listed below.  
Please bring your contributions to either the meeting on the Nov 8th or the meeting on November 15th meeting, your SPL will arrange for the collection.
 
Troop 2860 has a long and successful association with AWARE.  Our scouts have completed many Eagle Scout projects for AWARE and we’ve enjoyed Mrs. Harlow’s visits over the years.  
Mrs. Harlow and a few dedicated volunteers offer a wonderful service of animal rescue and rehabilitation, doing so with very limited resources.  Mrs. Harlow’s personal dedication to the effort is an inspiration.  The AWARE volunteers are licensed to house and care for animals, doing so on their personal property with enormous contributions of their time and resources. 
 
Please take a moment to review the wish list items and consider providing an item or two as a donation for the AWARE group.  We’ll collect the items at the next 2 meetings.  Each donated is greatly appreciated! The AWARE group is sustained by very limited contributions.  Our troop donations represent a significant contribution to the AWARE program.  Your contribution truly makes a difference. 
 
Life Scouts – The AWARE folks are always in need of animal pens and other projects to help the animals heal and be released. 
If you’re interested, please work with your Life to Eagle adviser and consider an AWARE Eagle Scout project. Mrs. Harlow’s contact info is:
