Troop 67445 delivered 75 packages of Girl Scout Cookies to Ronald McDonald House of Denver, their Hometown Hero. Athena is one of the Girl Scouts in the troop. Her younger brother had brain surgery last summer at Nationwide Children’s in Ohio and the family stayed at the Ronald McDonald House there. Athena met a Girl Scout troop there who came to make cookies for the guests. She was very grateful for everything they provided and wanted to give back. When her Girl Scout sisters in Colorado heard her story, they all wanted to help as well. We are happy to report that Athena’s is doing great!

Troop 3353 of Pine selected the rangers, staff, and volunteers of Staunton State Park as one of our Hometown Heroes. We presented Ranger Andrea and volunteer Amy with Girl Scout Cookies and got a sneak peek of the brand new visitor center opening in May. Andrea told us all about how to become a ranger and we had a great discussion about all the different animals, plants, and trees in the park. It was a great visit!

Rainbow Alley honored as Hometown Heroes

Cadette Troop 60074 tries to think outside of the box when it comes to choosing Hometown Heroes, and pick organizations that don’t get donations from other troops. This year, they chose Rainbow Alley, a community center for LGBTQ youth in Denver. When we brought the cookies in, they gave us a great tour and explained all of the services they offer for young people. We hope that the staff, volunteers, and kids enjoy the cookies!

Helping out our Hometown Hero

Last year, Troop 33418 picked Colorado State Patrol as our Hometown Hero. We heard that they do a teddy bear program, which the troopers carry in their vehicles to give to children when in an accident or any other bad situations. When we took the cookies to them, the girls decided to help put some of the teddy bears together for them. They had so much fun and enjoyment doing this for other children. I am amazed how our girls think of other children beside themselves.

Hometown Hero donation to Colorado Parks and Wildlife game wardens

The Cadettes of Troop 60074 decided to make game wardens (wildlife officers) in the Colorado Parks and Wildlife division one their Hometown Heroes this year! Since most of the game wardens don’t work out of an office, the girls delivered the Girl Scout Cookies as a surprise during their monthly regional staff meeting. The game wardens were so happy to get cookies! Their supervisor told us that no one had ever given them cookies in the 14 years she’d been there! We were so glad the girls chose to give them some cookie love! The game wardens loved them back with goodie bags filled with stuffed animals in Colorado Parks and Wildlife t-shirts, prairie bird identification books, Colorado wildlife identification books, and calendars. It felt so great to pick some Hometown Heroes that don’t get much recognition!

The girls also donated cookies to the park rangers and volunteers at Barr Lake State Park, and the staff at the Colorado Parks and Wildlife SOLE (Schools & Outdoor Learning Environments) program. All these Hometown Heroes were great choices, especially since our troop is busy working on our “Outdoor” Journey!

Daisy/Brownie Troop 43483 in Colorado Springs donated 192 packages of Girl Scout Cookies to Children’s Hospital and the Ronald McDonald House in Aurora. The troop has a special connection with Children’s Hospital as two younger siblings of girls in the troop have been patients there this year and their families experienced first-hand the wonderful resources Children’s provides.

The troop honored their Sister Scout siblings by donating cookies plus “craft gift bags” to be handed out to patients. The cookies are already being enjoyed by patients in the hospital’s family resource room.
