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.
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.
