5th grader donates Girl Scout cookies to cancer center in Appleton

APPLETON, Wis. - A 5th grader from Kaukauna made a special delivery in the Fox Valley. 

Katelyn Hoelzel, age 11, brought more than 70 boxes of girl scout cookies to Fox Valley Hematology and Oncology in Appleton. 

She has been donating cookies to the cancer center for years after her grandma went there for treatment. 

"Even the little things, like a $4 box of cookies, could really brighten somebody's day," said Julie Hoelzel, Katelyn's mother. 

"Kids now-a-days are just doing all kinds of nice stuff," said Skip Guernsey, a patient who received cookies from Hoelzel. 

All of the cookies were purchased and donated by people throughout the Fox Valley who chose to purchase Katelyn's cookies for her special cause.
