Our CARE Team received a *sweet* delivery today from a local Girl Scout. Eight-year-old Emma Martinez wanted to collect enough donations to send 40 boxes of her cookies to the team because (as she explained) her dad says, “They’re the best.” Emma’s father is a Fort Worth police officer assigned to the Crimes Against Children Unit. Due to the nature of his work, he interacts with the CARE Team regularly and is aware of the tough job they have. Emma created a video asking people to donate to her project called “Cookies for Cook’s CARE Team.” She’s quite the salesperson because today she delivered 151 boxes of Girl Scout cookies valued at $764. To Emma, we say “Thank you” for thinking of the CARE Team! As a token of their appreciation, the team sent her home with a new toy.
