Two Hometown Heroes are better than one

Troop 63787 decided they wanted to honor multiple Hometown Heroes this year. The girls delivered half their donations to thank the Thornton Police Department for their service. In return, they were treated to a tour of the police department by two female officers. Girl power!

The girls had also wanted to give Girl Scout Cookies to children with cancer, but Children’s Hospital said they could not give food donations to their patients. As an alternative, we came up with the Ronald McDonald House of Denver. On delivery day, each of our girls invited a friend and teamed up for a friendly baking competition. Along with the HTH cookies, they baked yummy homemade cupcakes and made sandwiches for the staff and residents of RMH. They had a great time and learned how they were able to make someone’s day sweeter–Girl Scout Cookies AND cupcakes are so much sweeter.
