GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- One Girl Scout troop here in the Grand Valley donated cookies to their hometown hero.
Every year troops pick an organization to donate cookies to at the end of the season. This year Troop 104-03 donated to Habitat for Humanity of Mesa County.
The scouts have been doing research on Habitat all through the cookie season and their troop leader says the girls wanted to donate to an organization that brings something good to families.
"We do special badges and special things for helping people in the community and making our environment better and helping people, that's a major part of the Girl Scout way and Girl Scout law,” said Katie Finhome, co-leader of Troop 104-03.
Altogether the girls raised enough money to donate 13 cases of cookies to workers building a Habitat house on Saturday. Each case has 12 boxes of cookies in it.
