You Can Help Homeless Girl Scouts By Buying Cookies Online: It’s Girls Scout cookie season, and you can support a special troop in New York City. Troop 6000 is made up of girls in the city’s homeless shelters. There are over 70-thousand people living in the Big Apple’s shelters at any given time and that means lots of kids. Troop 6000 meets weekly in over 20 shelters across all five boroughs of NYC. You can order online beginning March 1st by going to Troop 6000’s website.
