This year we had two options for troops to participate in the Council Gift of Caring and Hometown Hero program
The Gift of Caring program is a
Girl Scout community service project that provides donated Girl Scout
cookies to our active overseas military men and women through Support the Troops, Inc. In
addition, Girl Scouts of West Central Florida also disburses some of
the donated cookies to Feeding Tampa Bay. This year 46,392
boxes of Girl Scout Cookeis were purchased for military men,
women, local veterans, and those in need.
In the Hometown Hero program, troops/girls chose local community-serving organizations to participate in philanthropy and community service through the cookie program. This year, troops donated 14,904 boxes to organizations that support our community.
