Give the Gift of Cookies!
For many years, Girl Scouts across the country have used Girl Scout Cookies to show their appreciation for men and women in uniform or to support those in need through the Gift of Caring program. For various reasons, some customers do not want to buy cookies for themselves. With Gift of Caring, they have a chance to give to others while supporting Girl Scouting at the same time. Instead of keeping the Girl Scout Cookies for themselves to enjoy, customers can choose the Gift of Caring charity each Girl Scout has designated, and the cookies will then be presented to that particular organization.
For the 2017 Cookie Season, we are proud to announce that Hometown Heroes will be the official council-sponsored charity for the Gift of Caring program. Although girls are encouraged to designate their Gift of Caring cookies to the council-sponsored charity, they can select any organization of their choice.
All donations stay at the local level with girls distributing items to their choice of "Hometown Heroes." We ask that the girls work with their Service Unit to coordinate a designated site, and we would love to see pictures of the girls donating! Fall Sale Gift of Caring items will be direct shipped to the Service Unit Product Sale Manager delivery locations. The program will have two options: 1) Council Gift of Caring, cookies are ordered but do not get delivered to the Service Unit or troops, Council will designate a Home Town Hero location; 2) Troop Gift of Caring, cookies are ordered and delivered to the Service Unit and troops designate their choice locally.
