SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — This weekend, March 3 through 5, the Girl Scouts of NYPENN Pathways are celebrating National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend. Celebrate with the Girl Scouts by buying cookies all weekend and supporting them in the cookie program.
The annual weekend event celebrates all Girl Scouts and marks a time when the beloved cookies are widely available across the country and reminds customers that each purchase supports their local Girl Scouts. During Cookie Weekend, the public can use the Girl Scout Cookie Finder to locate early cookie booths across the GSNYPENN region this weekend.
According to GSNYPENN, around 125 booths are scheduled in the council’s footprint which spans 24 counties in N.Y. Troops earned early cookie booths as special incentives during the council’s Early Bird Renewal period and the 2022 Treats, Reads & More fall product program. (GSNYPENN’s regular booth season runs April 1-23.) For those not interested in using the cookie locator and driving to find cookies, they can order cookies for direct shipment using troop ordering links available through the cookie finder. Learn more on the council’s dedicated season page.
Cookie Weekend supports the Girl Scouts with 100 percent of cookie program proceeds going to local powering life-changing programming and volunteer support through councils. Proceeds also help build troop funds so they can gain invaluable experiences like attending summer camp, going on field trips, and spearheading community service projects. GSNYPENN cookie season runs through April 23 and locally, cookies remain priced at $5 per package.
