Buy a Box of Joy for Hometown Heroes: Every donation of Girl Scout Cookies supports girls’ success
Girl Scouts of Colorado is excited to offer a new opportunity for Coloradans to honor hometown heroes in their community while supporting Girl Scouts in Focus on Abilities, a multi-intensive program for Girl Scouts with learning, behavioral, mental, and physical disabilities led by GSCO Outreach staff. Between now and the end of the Girl Scout Cookie Program on March 21, 2021, you can go to the Girl Scouts of Colorado website and purchase packages of cookies to be donated to educators, first responders, health care workers, food banks, and military personnel. After the Cookie Program ends, Girl Scouts of Colorado will deliver a mix of Girl Scout Cookies to these hometown heroes on your behalf.
“It really is a win-win-win! With your support, Girl Scouts can fund their next adventure and we’ll deliver the cookies to hometown heroes to enjoy the sweet taste of ‘normal’ everyone is craving right now!” said Leanna Clark, Girl Scouts of Colorado chief executive officer.
Girl Scouts in the Focus on Abilities program are children with multiple disabilities who have used the money raised through the Cookie Program to fund field trips and other experiences, like adaptive horseback riding. The K-12 special needs Girl Scout group at Fletcher Miller School in Lakewood has participated in the cookie program for 20 years using some of their proceeds to fund adaptive equipment for the classroom.
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.
