Girl Scout Brownie Troop 65573 was treated to a visit by Deputy Andrew of the Douglas County Sheriff’s Department! The local sheriffs are this troop’s Hometown Heroes, and the girls really enjoyed thanking them for all they do to keep everyone safe in the community, and also made sure they got their entire case of cookies that had been donated. A Daisy from our sister troop was also there to help, as she was training on how to run a successful cookie booth.
We learned that when the sheriff is at the cookie booth, lots and lots of people want to thank them for their service to our community, and buy lots of cookies! This got us even closer to our cookie sales goal.
A police officer visited our cookie booth. She wanted to purchase a package of cookies. We had just had a customer donate 19 Hometown Hero packages!!! We tried to give her one, but she insisted on purchasing a package to support us. We were so thrilled. We discussed with her about running an event to visit the police station and doing any activities we want to earn an award. We are so excited for this opportunity and can’t wait to make it a reality. Our Hometown Heroes really are our heroes!
Girl Scouts from Troop 35144 invited our local fire department to come see us at our cookie booth and purchase some cookies. We then let them know they are our Hometown Heroes and their station will be receiving donated cookies at the end of the season. They brought two firetrucks for us to see, answered our many questions, showed us their uniform, and demonstrated how quickly they have to put it on in an emergency. Thank you to our local heroes at Pueblo Main Rural Fire Department for all your assistance!
Zosia L., Wilhelmina M., and Kiera K. from Troop 35367 got a chance to meet their Hometown Heroes, the Englewood Police Department, and sell cookies at a Charles Hay World School organized event, Cougar-Palooza, on Thursday, February 13, 2020. Lots of questions were asked from both the Girl Scouts and police officers!
Troop 27145 of Mancos participated in their first cookie booth of the season and had a repeat customer. Sgt. Brad Ray stopped by and purchased a few packages of cookies with the promise that he’ll be back. Not even an hour later, he returned as promised for cookies for his family and donated some packages once he learned that the troop decided that the teachers of Mancos RE6 were their Hometown Heroes!
Troop 27145 embodies the G.I.R.L. spirit! We have one Junior who loves to help organize and lead the troop in activities and our Brownies really dive in to anything they decide to do. They are fast on their feet and can problem solve as a team to accomplish their goal and have really bonded as a troop this year.
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.
