Thank you Fort Collins for supporting our Girl Acout troop and their Hometown Hero! Thanks to you 281 packages of cookies were delivered to the Fort Collins Mission to help give some goodies to our local homeless population. While we were dropping off the cookies, the girls saw a man and his son waiting in line for food. Homelessness can impact anyone and we were thankful for the opportunity to give to those less fortunate in our local community.

Girl Scout Cookies booth at Pepsi Center

Troop 76134 from Erie hosted a Girl Scout Cookies booth at Pepsi Center! The troop was one of the winners of the ticket referral contest for Girl Scout Night with the Avalanche. The girls and their families had a great time at the game. In particular, many of the dads enjoyed watching the girls run their booth because they don’t usually get to see their daughters earning and learning the 5 Skills.

The troop sold more than 500 packages of cookies—and is still counting the Hometown Hero donations. One of the leaders told GSCO, “People were giving $20 bills for one package and said to keep the rest! Our troop’s Hometown Hero is the Weld County Sheriff’s Office this year, so they will be loaded up!”
