September Community Service: Baking for Our Furry Little Friends

For this month’s community service, we decided to get creative and do something a little different than we’ve done before. We baked dog treats for a local animal shelter! It was a lot of fun going to the grocery store to get the appropriate ingredients for the dog treats. Not only were we “on business” to find the right materials for this project, it was also a great way to spend some time with each other. With all the crazy schedules each of us have – work, school, extra-curriculars, etc. – it was nice to be able to catch up with my fellow court members. It certainly solidifies our mantra of sisterhood in this pageant. I’m reminded of how much we care about each other and that special bond we’ve created, and it all started when we first met at the Meet and Greet as contestants. But I digress…

We all generally like to cook and/or bake, so this was a neat project for us. It was somewhat of a challenge finding impromptu baking utensils (we didn’t have a rolling pin or cookie cutters), but we made it work! The recipe was easy enough and we each had a hand, literally, in baking these treats. The treats turned out nicely and we soon had plenty of them to donate to our local animal shelter. But first, we had to have a taste-tester’s opinion. Don’t worry, it wasn’t any of us!! Truc gave her dog some of our treats and it was definitely doggy-approved!

It was certainly enjoyable to do such a fun activity and one that also benefited our community – the animal community. Animals at the shelter are oftentimes overlooked, and this was a small token to give our furry friends a little treat to let them know we’re thinking of them.
