Thornton

First year Daisy Troop 66802 from Thornton had a very successful cookie sale. Seven little girls earned over $1,900 for their troop! A visit to Thornton Fire Station #5 was scheduled so they could deliver their Hometown Hero Girl Scout Cookies. The girls got to see what the fire station is like and also earn their Safety Award. They even got to hear the fire engine sirens because the station got a call just as we were arriving.

Troop 1368 delivered their 424 packages of Hometown Hero Girl Scout Cookies to the Elk Creek Fire Department on April 14, 2017. That’s 124 packages over their goal! The original delivery had to be rescheduled because the firefighters have been busy putting out fires already this spring. The girls vote to have them as our Hometown Hero every year because they continue to keep our mountain community safe from fires.

Girl Scouts donate cookies to volunteer fire department

Pueblo

Girl Scout Troop 32640 decided to donate Girl Scout Cookies to the fire department this year, but not just a regular fire department. The West Park Fire Department is run by volunteers. They do not get paid, but do their job anyway. Our girls know how hard it is to fight wildfires and do a job when you don’t get recognized often. We hope that our sweet treats make their jobs a little easier this year.

I am so incredibly proud of Girl Scout Troop 44636. Their Hometown Heroes were the wounded warriors that use the Soldier and Family Assistance Center at Fort Carson. Just by asking cookie customers to donate, they ended up getting 471 donated packages of Girl Scout Cookies and we were fortunate enough to donate them in April. Here’s to all those service members and their families for giving so much! It felt so good to give back!
