NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast delivered more than 1,000 boxes of Girl Scout nuts and candies on Thursday to the USO Service Center at the Norfolk International Airport.

The treats are part of the Girl Scouts’ fall product program known as “Hometown Hero,” which allows customers to make donations through purchasing products.

The Girl Scouts have been collecting for the “Hometown Hero” special program as part of their fall product sales for over a decade.

“Girl Scouts have really embraced the ‘Hometown Hero’ program as part of our fall product sales,” GSCCC CEO Tracy Keller said. “Community service is a very important part of Girl Scouts and this is one way girls can help others. We love working with the USO and have partnered with them on many projects, including Gift of Caring- a part of the Girl Scout Cookie Program that allows people to donate boxes of cookies to service men and women.”

Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast is a United Way agency and serves nearly 11,000 girls in grades K through 12 in southeastern Virginia and northeastern North Carolina.
