HTH Delivery and Social Distancing Bike Ride

Sixth grade Girl Scout Cadette Troop 60594 from Broomfield delivered cookies to their Hometown Heroes by way of a social distancing bike ride. We loaded up a bike trailer with the cookies, a poster sized thank you card, and took to a bike path. The girls had fun riding their bikes. Proving they can have fun anywhere, the girls created a “bike wave” as they rode-similar to a stadium audience wave. It was our own personal bike parade!

Troop 40294 decided to donate our Hometown Hero cookies to the food bank at Crossfire Ministries. They were thrilled to be able to give our Girl Scout Cookies to families in need who normally couldn’t afford our cookies. We also held a food drive within our own troop to give extra shelf stable goods during this extra difficult time- all while social distancing.

In the photo is Ella and Dinah, representing our whole troop. Dinah is one of the leaders for the troop. Special thanks to Julie, the other troop leader and cookie mom for our troop. She picked the collection of cookies for donation, and of course, the task of cookie mom and all that record keeping that goes with it.

Cookies to Hometown Heroes

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.
