Cookie Earnings and Volunteer Day at the Humane Society

Daisy Troop 66446 collected pet supplies after the cookie program, and budgeted cookie earnings to purchase wish list items for the Humane Society of the South Platte Valley. They donated all items, toured the facility, filled KONG toys with peanut butter for the pups, and cuddled kittens in the nursery. The girls learned about what pets need to be happy and healthy, how the shelter operates, and how they can help homeless pets (without adopting them all!)

This year, our Girl Scouts voted to deliver Girl Scout Cookies to their Hometown Heroes, the teachers of Inspiration View Elementary School.  These teachers have invested so much during this year of COVID schooling and we appreciate all that they do! Drop-off day was this week and the girls were not only excited to take a picture with the principal, but also to share about the fun things they’ve accomplished!

Troop 68098 collected donated cookies for the teachers and staff of Roxborough Intermediate School. They felt the teachers and staff had been working extra hard with all of the challenges the pandemic brought and they wanted to give them a treat!

The girls also used some of their cookie proceeds to make blankets to donate to kids in need of a little extra comfort. They made the blankets while listening to Michelle Obama talk about community service and other wonderful points.

Colorado Springs Troop 42733 recently completed their Hometown Hero donations and Service Through Cookies project! Our troop chose teachers as their Hometown Hero this year and delivered more than 150 packages of Girl Scout Cookies across four schools represented in our troop. Teachers and staff in our local schools have mastered the art of working within the confines of COVID this past school year, and have had to think and work creatively to keep students in the classrooms learning as much as they have. Each school’s administration was so excited to be honored in such a way and the teachers were thrilled to receive some end of the year treats!

Additionally, our troop chose to donate 20% of our cookie proceeds to  Children’s Hospital in Colorado Springs in games and stuffed animals. Representatives from our troop delivered the toys and games last week to a welcoming staff who were so excited for new items to be given to their kids and families.

Brownie Troop 65750 Delivers 202 Packages of Cookies to Children’s Hospital

The Girl Scout Brownies of Troop 65750 chose to honor the heroes at Children’s Hospital Colorado as their Hometown Hero this year. These ten Brownies from Denver’s Central Park Neighborhood delivered 202 packages of cookies and made six blankets to give to patient families.

When choosing a Hometown Hero, these Brownies saw two types of heroes at Children’s. First, the healthcare heroes who have been working especially hard during the pandemic, and also the patients and their families who are receiving life-giving care. They were particularly inspired by the Child Life Department at Children’s that works to help children feel comfortable at the hospital.

The Brownies hope to return to Children’s Hospital Colorado in the future as Girl Scout Juniors to take a tour and learn more about this important community resource.
