Win a year’s supply of Girl Scout Cookies

Girl Scouts of Western New York will host a 12-hour membership drive called the Girl Scout “Join-a-Thon,” and offer unique incentives to both adults and girls who register from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 15. Throughout the day, GSWNY will take on-the-spot registrations over the phone and in-person registrations during normal business hours.

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. The first 50 to join will receive an exclusive “Join-a-Thon” patch while those who register during the day will have a chance to win a $100 Amazon gift card, a year’s supply of Girl Scout cookies, or a $25 Amazon gift card when they call 1-888-837-6410 or visit a GSWNY service center.

New this year is a free “Slime, Cocoa & Cookies” event for new girls to make slime, enjoy Girl Scout cookies and hot chocolate, have a chance to win prizes, and learn about the Girl Scout experience. Girls must be accompanied by an adult to attend. The event will take place during the Girl Scout “Join-a-Thon,” from 5:30-7 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 15, at Girl Scouts of Western New York’s service centers:
