Girl Scouts work with Hospice of the Valley

Jan. 9 marked the beginning of Girl Scout cookie sales, and Brownie Girl Scouts of Troop 774 are working towards a successful sales season.

The scouts are also partnering with Hospice of the Valley for its Gift of Caring Program this year, which allows customers to donate boxes of cookies to organizations or community members. Hospice of the Valley was chosen by one of the scouts in Troop 774 because Hospice helped her grandmother. Hospice helped prepare fliers and posters for the Brownies.

Cheryl Thomas, associate director of fund development, along with volunteers with therapy dogs visited the troop meeting to educate the girls on Hospice’s mission and services.
