Girl Scouts from the NYPENN Pathways Council sold 1,260,493 boxes of cookies during the 2021 cookie program which concluded on March 28. Of those sales, 24,556 boxes were purchased by customers through the Sweet Support Gift of Caring annual service project.
Each year, the council designates a community partner (or partners) to receive cookie donations. Customers have the opportunity to support local Girl Scouts during the cookie program even if they choose to not take those cookies home. The motto is: “Can’t eat them? Treat them!” This season, cookies are being donated to Meals on Wheels programs (9,585 boxes) and local first responders (14,971 boxes) across the council’s footprint of 24 counties in New York and two in northern Pennsylvania.
Cookies were sent to Tioga Opportunities, Inc. to provide an extra special treat to our Home Delivered Meals recipients. We thank the GSNYPENN’s generous donation that brought a smile to our Home Delivered Meals recipients.
