Cookies to Hometown Heroes

Submitted by Alisha James

Ella delivered donations on behalf of Troop 76091 to their Hometown Heroes, the Boulder Valley Humane Society. In addition to Girl Scout Cookies for the staff, the girls also included cat scratchpads that they made out of cookie cases and blankets that were made or purchased. The Boulder Valley Humane Society has so many deserving volunteers and workers. The girls can’t wait to get a tour organized once more restrictions are lifted.

During cookie season, these girls spent several meetings working together by helping roll the cardboard to make it easier to be glued together to create the cat scratchpads and making the fleece blankets. Some of the fleece was donated by Hidden Treasure2 in Longmont. The girls chose Boulder Valley Humane Society because many had rescued pets of their own and truly believe in their mission.

We want to hear how your girl is using her Girl Scout skills by taking initiative, caring for the community, and Girl Scouting at home. She can send in her story here.
