On Monday, March 17, Summit Cove Daisy Scout Troop 979 of the Girl Scouts of the USA presented 10 cases of Girl Scout Cookies™ to the Summit County Sheriff’s Office as part of their Hometown Heroes program.

The troop selected the sheriff’s office as their Hometown Heroes “because they help people,” said one pint-sized Daisy Scout in a sheriff’s office news release.

Summit County Sheriff John Minor and other representatives of the sheriff’s office met the troop at Summit Cove Elementary school, where the girls were introduced to K-9 Bobby and were allowed to sit in the driver’s seat of a sheriff’s office vehicle and operate the lights and sirens.

“I want to thank the Daisy Scouts for this generous donation,” said Minor in the release. “We are going to institute ‘Cookie Wednesdays’ at the sheriff’s office, so stop by any time.”

Through the Hometown Heroes program, Girl Scouts of Colorado may adopt nonprofit organizations, food banks, military and uniformed personnel and donate cookies to these community heroes. In 2013, this statewide program netted 124,897 packages for hundreds of organizations, the release stated.
