Milford teen and his Boy Scout Troop hold fundraiser for 'K-9' program

The event was dubbed "Dogs for Dogs"

MILFORD - The Police Department recently received a donation from a local Boy Scout who organized a fundraiser to support the department's canine program, police said in a statement.
"Andrew Preiss and other members of Troop 12 held the fundraiser in August at Napoli Motors on Bridgeport Avenue as part of a Boy Scout project which was called 'Dogs for Dogs,'" the statement said. "Hotdogs and soda supplied by the dealership were sold that day by the scouts which raised $400."
"The Boy Scouts’ efforts were recently recognized at the Milford Police Commissioners’ meeting where the donation was accepted," the statement said.
The department thanked Andrew, the troop and Napoli Motors for their support.
