Tiger Scouts donate to Franklin County Animal Control

West Frankfort Tiger Scouts den leader Terry Rhodes breathed a sigh of relief and joked about having a clearer basement and garage.

Rhodes explained, “We have been collecting recyclable materials for the past four months. We spent a few days crushing plastic and other materials before taking the load to Southern Recycling in Carbondale.

“We will continue the recycling project and are using this as a community service project to teach others about recycling and saving the earth,” Rhodes said. “The Tiger Scouts want to help others, and we decided to donate the money we collected to Franklin County Animal Control to help Jarrett Broy, the supervisor, and his staff to help care for the animals.”
