One could win a year's supply of Girl Scout cookies
With the start of a new program year, Girl Scouts of Western New York (GSWNY) will hold the Girl Scout "Join-a-thon" from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 14 - and take on-the-spot registrations over the phone.
This event will utilize 10 different radio stations throughout GSWNY's nine-county regional service area to direct listeners to call 1-888-837-6410 and register for Girl Scouts.
Girl Scouts offers all-girl, girl-led leadership development experience for girls all over the world.
Adults who register to become volunteers and or register their girls during the Girl Scout "Join-a-thon" will have a chance to win Girl Scout goodies. The first 100 to join receive an exclusive "Join-a-thon" patch while all those who register during the event have a chance to win a $150 Amazon gift card, a year's supply of Girl Scout cookies, or a $25 Amazon gift card when they call 1-888-837-6410. As a special bonus, if 200 girls register, the one-year's supply prize will be upgraded to a two-year supply of Girl Scout cookies.
Adults must be 18 years of age or older to volunteer, while girls must be in grades K-12 to join.
In addition, Girl Scouts is sending out a special invite for girls in grades K-1 to join as Daisy Girl Scouts.
At Girl Scouts, girls get to lead their own adventure and team up with other girls in an all-girl environment to choose the hands-on activities that interest them most in skill areas such as science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), outdoors, life skills and entrepreneurship.
Though this is a one-day event, those interested in joining as an adult volunteer or girl member can still register after; however, the special Girl Scout goodie prizes won't be available. For more information, call 1-888-837-6410 or visit gswny.org.
GSWNY serves nearly 15,000 girls and 7,000 adult volunteers across its jurisdiction, including Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Erie, Genesee, Livingston, Monroe, Niagara, Orleans and Wyoming counties. The council's administrative service centers are located in Batavia, Buffalo, Jamestown, Lockport, Niagara Falls and Rochester.
