Troop 42733 Delivers Hometown Hero Cookies and Completes Service Project

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.

We want to hear how your girl is using her Girl Scout skills by taking initiative, caring for the community, and Girl Scouting at home. She can send in her story here.

Sage, a Brownie from Pagosa Springs, accomplished the biggest goal she set for herself this cookie season, which was to collect 80 packages of Girl Scout Cookies to donate to the staff and teachers at her local elementary school. Sage wanted to recognize them as Hometown Heroes and thank them for all they have done to make sure the children could attend school safely this year.

Daisy/Brownie Troop 43483 in Colorado Springs was excited to deliver Hometown Hero cookies to the teachers and support staff at Evans International Elementary School (EIES), where they attend and hold weekly meetings. This troop of 18 girls sold over 5,800 packages of cookies and collected enough donations to give 161 packages to the staff.

The girls chose the school staff because “they keep us safe,” “they are kind,” “they teach us,” and “they love us.” This decision followed the girls’ completion of the Brownie Quest Journey where they took action to address safety concerns in their school community.

The troop presented their cookie donation to an appreciative EIES staff on 3/17/17.
