The Gift of Caring program is a nationwide community service project where Girl Scout troops may decide on a charitable organization or service group – Hometown Heroes – they would like to support with cookie donations as a way to say thank you. These organizations range from shelters and food banks, to military organizations such as the USO.
Through Gift of Caring, customers may purchase one or more boxes of Girl Scout Cookies and donate them to a special cause while supporting Girl Scouts!
GSCCC is proud to announce that the USO is the Council-sponsored Gift of Caring charity. Although girls are encouraged to designate their Gift of Caring cookies to the Council sponsored charity, they can select any organization of their choice. GSCCC will deliver the cookies to the USO who will then distribute the cookies to an active duty military or domestic veteran audience.
To encourage customers to support Gift of Caring, Girl Scout troops may use this Hometown Heroes cookie cover a wrap that fits a box of Thin Mints, as a display at their cookie booth. Add a Gift of Caring drop box at the booth where donated Girl Scout Cookies can be displayed. Customers will appreciate seeing the donated cookies stacking up and knowing they are helping make a difference! Use this Gift of Caring Poster to help track your sales.
