Girl Scouts Deliver 12,000 Donated Cookies To Hospitalized Veterans

In addition to their iconic cookies, Girl Scouts are known for their charitable community acts—volunteering, cleaning up local parks, etc. Last week, a Girl Scout troop in Colorado went above and beyond by delivering 12,000 cookies to a local VA medical center and the story is incredibly wholesome.

A Girl Scout troop in Aurora Colorado is making headlines after visiting the Rocky Mountain Regional VA Medical Center on Thursday.

Troop members, leaders, and family members arrived at the medical center with 12,000 Girl Scout cookies donated by customers across the state through the Hometown Heroes/Gift of Caring program.

13-year-old Emma Bacon said helping veterans is an important part of the troop’s mission.

“Our veterans serve us and they help keep our freedom and they keep us protected so we wanted to give back so they know they’re appreciated,” she said.

A trailer packed with cookies arrived at the medical center and Girl Scouts split into groups to distribute as many boxes as possible to patients, staff, and family members in different wings of the VA.

“They help us and like protect us so we can be free so we’re just giving back to them,” said Girl Scout Chloe Vaughn, 12.

The scouts were able to pass out the majority of the donated cookies around the hospital and those not passed out will be saved for the veteran patients to have year-round.

“It made me feel really good and I know they really felt appreciative of us noticing them and giving back,” said Bacon.
