Highlands Ranch Girl Scouts (and sisters) Reagan and Camryn P. donated 24 packages of Girl Scout Cookies to Douglas County Search and Rescue as a thank you for all they do for the community. A representative from Douglas County Search and Rescue visited the girls at their cookie booth at King Soopers on Sunday, February 24, 2019 to collect the cookies.
Customers purchased these cookies from Reagan and Camryn’s troop as part of Girl Scouts’ Hometown Heroes program. Making the world a better place is central to the Girl Scout mission. During the Girl Scout Cookie Program, Girl Scouts honor the non-profit organizations, food banks, military, and uniformed personnel who are so important to the community. Through Hometown Heroes/Gift of Caring program, customers have the opportunity to purchase a package of cookies to donate to Girl Scouts’ heroes – a perfect solution for those who choose to resist the tempting treats! Girls learn about the invaluable work of their recipients by taking tours, learning about careers in public service, and helping with service projects. All Hometown Heroes/Gift of Caring purchases may be eligible for a tax deduction.
A special thanks to CBS4/KCNC-TV and Fox31/KDVR-TV for joining Girl Scouts for the event and sharing the sisters’ story with their viewers.
