Cookies for a Cause

Committed to giving back to the community, Girl Scouts Hornet’s Nest Council has expanded efforts for cookie donations to include a local focus to our hometown heroes — fire, police and first responders — as well as local charities and nonprofits.

Representing Girl Scouts of Rowan County, the Girl Scout Troop 1846 nominated the Rowan Sheriff’s Department as well as Rowan Helping Ministries in recognition of all they have done and continue to do for our community. 240 boxes of cookies were set aside for donation. The girls hand-delivered 120 boxes to the Sheriff’s Department on April 13 and 120 boxes to Rowan Helping Ministries on April 20.
