Billings Youth Recognized for Volunteer Efforts

Posted: Updated:

An eight-year-old from Billings is recognized for her volunteer efforts in the community.

Since October 2012, Allie Schwarzinger has been volunteering at BARK, or Billings Animal Rescue Kare. She applied for the Kohl's Cares scholarship program and has made it through the first round, qualifying her for a chance to win a $1,000 regional scholarship. She says she wanted to volunteer at BARK after going there to get a dog of her own.

"Because my dogs are happy and I want them to be happy so they can have a home and they don't have to live a life crying,” Allie says.

Allie is one of four winners in Montana. She is expecting to hear soon to see if she is one of the regional winners of the Kohl's Cares scholarship.
