Troop 40698 selected Children’s Hospital Colorado as their Hometown Hero. In addition to delivering Girl Scout Cookies, Girl Scouts used cookie proceeds to purchase coloring books, sketch books, crayons, color pencils, and markers for all ages.
Girl Scout Troop 65412 from Aurora delivered the 240 packages of Girl Scout Cookies they collected during the Cookie Program to their Hometown Hero, Metro Caring Food Bank. While there, the Girl Scouts toured the market and stocked shelves with the first packages of cookies!
Troop 36267 gave back to our Pueblo community by delivering 45 packages of Girl Scout Cookies to Firehouse #4 in Pueblo. These Girl Scouts also helped clean up City Park for part of their community service for the year.
Brownie Troop 66848 visited one of our Hometown Heroes, downtown Castle Rock Fire Station #151 a couple of weeks ago. Girl Scouts delivered Girl Scout Cookies and also earned their “First Aid” badge during the visit. It was very inspiring for our girls that one of the firefighters talking to them was a young woman, as most of the firefighters they usually meet are men.
Troop 43318 brought Hometown Hero Girl Scout Cookies to the volunteers at the Marian House Soup Kitchen in Colorado Springs. The girls worked hard to collect 60 packages for the volunteers. In past years, they have donated to the sheriff’s office, firefighters, and humane society volunteers.
I love that the troop came up with idea of the Marian House volunteers on their own.
Aurora/Centennial area Junior Troop 60047 held their annual mother-daughter weekend, which included bringing 13 cases of Hometown Hero Girl Scout Cookie donations to the rangers of the Rocky Mountain National Park. As part of their Outdoor Journey, the girls wanted to thank the rangers for their commitment to protecting our beautiful Rocky Mountains. Rangers Maci McPherson and Christie Wilkins explained how they became rangers. Ranger Christie even told a story about meeting with her high school counselor, who told her that girls could not become rangers. That story truly reinforced that girls can be anything they put their minds too since she had overcome the stereotype and now gets to do a job she loves. The Girl Scouts also had the opportunity to complete a service project by picking-up trash at the East Inlet Trail before taking a hike to see Adams Falls. The entire weekend was filled with memories to last a lifetime.
Troop 43893 in Colorado Springs delivered Girl Scout Cookies to their Hometown Hero, H.O.P.E. Worldwide- Colorado Springs. This amazing, multi-level troop collected donations during cookie season for over 200 packages. This Hometown Hero organization helps bring hope and change to the poor and needy in our community. Our girls met and chose HOPE after they had the opportunity to serve at a volunteer session. The girls made and served burritos and hot chocolate to our chronically homeless during the winter months. We look forward to serving with HOPE again in the future.
Girl Scout Junior Troop 61048 of Denver delivered 60 packages of Girl Scout Cookies to Children’s Hospital Colorado Family Resource Center on April 19, 2019.

We had an interesting tour and visit and are proud to support this great organization.
