Troop 64098 from Aurora, Colorado brought over 300 packages of Girl Scout Cookies to Special Olympics, the troop’s Hometown Hero. Girl Scouts Chloe, Avery, and Emily and Troop Leaders Jennifer and Shannon volunteered their day helping at the Denver North Regional Track Meet. We all had a wonderful time and plan on doing more volunteering with Special Olympics!
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 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.
Brownie Troop 75910 out of Greeley chose the staff at Colorado State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital as their Hometown Hero. The troop of eight girls in their first year of selling together donated 181 packages of Girl Scout Cookies. Hospital employees took the girls on a tour and allowed them to pass out the cookies to each individual department.
The girls of Troop 70700 donated their Hometown Heroes Girl Scout Cookies to the heroes who take care of animals every day at the Larimer Humane Society in Fort Collins. The girls delivered 30 packages of cookies along with a large bag of donated towels to the staff and volunteers. While visiting the shelter, they spent time with some of the special adoptable pets looking for their forever homes.
Daisy Troop 65874 delivered the second half of their Girl Scout cookie donations to Parker Task Force! The girls worked hard, and the reward was encouraging for next year! Nice job young ladies! I am very proud of you all!
On Saturday, April 8, 2017, Troop 60185 from Littleton and Morrison delivered Hometown Hero Girl Scout Cookies to the Flight for Life CO team. Not only did they tour the helipad, and the medical helicopter, they also visited the call center for Flight for Life. What an awesome experience and such a great team of individuals!
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!
