If at first you do succeed, try to achieve big again! Starting on April 22, Girl Scout Troop 6000 went big and bold when they took over Kellogg’s NYC for the second year in a row.
Troop 6000 is made up of more than 500 girls in New York City who are experiencing homelessness. Girls from the troop showed their unstoppable go-getter spirit when they participated in the Girl Scout Cookie Program® for the first time at the cereal café in 2018.
Other troops join in the fun
When Troop 6000 returned to the café this year, girls set out to earn money for a camping trip. Other troops from Girl Scouts of Greater New York joined the girls in selling Girl Scout Cookies® to help Troop 6000 reach their goal.
After a week of running their cookie shop, girls learned about the science that goes into making Girl Scout Cookies, and they even baked their own cookies! Girls enjoyed lots of fun lessons, like how marshmallows are really challenging to work with, especially after they’re melted in an oven.
Girls rolled up their sleeves, got their fingers sticky and had a great time! It was an exciting week for all who participated!
More thinking outside the cookie box
Kellogg’s NYC is just one example of how Girl Scouts of Greater New York took the opportunity to #thinkoutsidethecookiebox when it comes to booth locations. In a video feature by Spectrum News NY1, girl entrepreneurs from the council are shown taking the lead in their own pop-up shop. Girls also had the option of running their cookie businesses out of a food truck.
