Jimmy Powell and Ken Newton stand with Betty Garcia, Bobby Garcia and their daughters, Alani Garcia, 5, and Raquel Garcia, 12, of Girl Scout Troop 2009 as the Garcias deliver a truckload of cardboard boxes to contribute to Artesia Car Parts and the BPO Does’ recycling campaign. “We heard about what Artesia Car Parts does with the Does,” said troop leader Betty Garcia. “This is a good thing for the Girl Scouts, because we are helping the community and helping the Does out.” Artesia Car Parts collects cardboard material for recycling, with funds going to the Does to benefit the Dogs for the Deaf program. Hibbett Sports and O’Reilly Auto Parts are participating by saving boxes for the Girl Scouts to pick up. Other companies interested in aiding the Girl Scouts’ recycling efforts may contact Alice Buck at 746-9846.
