Colorado Springs Troop 42733 recently completed their Hometown Hero donations and Service Through Cookies project! Our troop chose teachers as their Hometown Hero this year and delivered more than 150 packages of Girl Scout Cookies across four schools represented in our troop. Teachers and staff in our local schools have mastered the art of working within the confines of COVID this past school year, and have had to think and work creatively to keep students in the classrooms learning as much as they have. Each school’s administration was so excited to be honored in such a way and the teachers were thrilled to receive some end of the year treats!

Additionally, our troop chose to donate 20% of our cookie proceeds to  Children’s Hospital in Colorado Springs in games and stuffed animals. Representatives from our troop delivered the toys and games last week to a welcoming staff who were so excited for new items to be given to their kids and families.

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.
