The survey will only be open until Friday, July 15, 2022.
Troop 72208 delivered HTH cookies to the Poudre Valley Hospital NICU unit. The girls chose the NICU unit as their HTH because a brother of 2 of the girls had spent time in the NICU last summer and the staff is wonderful.
Daisy Troop 65804 and Brownie Troop 68383 are passionate about giving back and doing good with their cookie money! When these girls heard that their HTH cookies could help kids right in their own schools, they didn’t hesitate!
Food for Hope is a Food Pantry specific to Adams 12, Adams14 and 27J School Districts. Not only do they have pantries located in several schools, but they also make available weekly take home food bags for kiddos. Troops 65804 and 68383 enjoyed a quick tour of the store rooms at Thorncreek Church and learning about how F4H helps local kiddos have food in their house when they might not otherwise.
After the tour the girls each filled a bag, consisting of all the major food groups to be available to a kid in need. Before the girls left,
they handed over cookie money checks totaling $415!!! What an eye opening experience! These girls rocked giving back to their community!!!
Troop 66767 delivered their hometown hero cookie packages to the Children’s Hospital North Campus nurses! We also brought blankets and gift bags to give patients. We’re so thankful for our heroes!!
The cookie entrepreneurs of Multi-Level Troop 65659 celebrated the contributions of two Hometown Heroes in 2022.
Cadette Kennedy and Daisy Summer were happy to deliver donated cookies to Black Lives Matter 5280. Since 2015, Black Lives Matter 5280 has received several community awards for its work in the areas of justice, peace, and civil rights. BLM5280’s #BlackIsBeautiful Facebook series in 2020 was published in the academic journal Visual Studies. BLM5280’s Freedom School teaches students from ECE-8th grade to become racially literate and civically-minded by centering Black knowledge, people, and principles. When meeting with BLM5280’s Branta to present the cookies, the girls were happy to network about new Take Action ideas especially in the area of education.
Cadette Julianna also delivered donated cookies to Big Brothers Big Sisters. The mission of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Colorado is to create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth so that all youth achieve their full potential. Julianna says she chose Big Brothers Big Sisters as her hometown hero because they help at risk youth including kids in foster care to have more success in the future. The volunteer mentors known as “Bigs” are taking their “Littles” on a ski trip and the cookies we donated will be served to these volunteers at that event. Pictured are a few of the volunteer Bigs. Julianna also met Haley Fried and Amy Stapleton (not pictured) who is a former Girl Scout. Julianna’s older brother benefited from Big Brothers Big Sisters of Colorado as a Little, so the organization has special personal meaning to her.
A big thank you to these non-profits from Troop 65659!
From television to radio to newspapers and even social media, Girl Scouts of Colorado Media Stars have been working hard to spread the word about the 2022 Girl Scout Cookie Program, how Girl Scouts are selling cookies in new and innovative ways, and all the amazing things they do with their cookie money.
From Grand Junction to Colorado Springs to Denver, here are a few media interviews featuring GSCO Media Stars.
Media Stars are recruited every fall, typically in August and September. If you know a girl interested in being a Media Star, please contact Public Relations Manager Hannah Gutkind.
On March 19, a massive operation was conducted that included the boxing and shipping of over 6,000 boxes of cookie donations.
The cookies arrived at the base location on March 28 and were immediately accepted with smiles from each of the Soldiers. They received two large boxes packed to the brim with Girl Scout cookies so there were plenty to share with friends in the Air Force and Space Force.
Here are two of the Soldiers with the cookies and the two cards they received from the Girl Scouts.
Although their deployment is coming to an end, there are always Military members overseas who enjoy receiving care packages that provide a little bit of an escape and remind them of home. Especially if it is in the form of Girl Scout Cookies!!
Girl Scout Olivia from Troop 26237 in Pagosa Springs donated cookies and other items to Denver Children’s Home. Denver Children’s Home helps kids who have survived trauma, neglect, and abuse confront serious mental health challenges.
Troop 66861 delivered 306 packages to their Hometown Hero, Bridge of Hope Greater Denver (https://www.facebook.com/DENBridgeofHope/). This organization assists with ending and preventing homelessness for women and children.
