(WBNG) -- It’s almost time for the 2022 Girl Scout cookie season and Girl Scouts of NYPENN Pathways (GSNYPENN) is looking for assistance from regional businesses and community organizations to help girls and troops have a safe and successful season.

The council hopes to connect with area businesses and organizations in high-traffic areas to allow troops to host drive-thru cookie booths, as well as those that would like to host traditional walk-up booths. Troops also need inside, secure locations for cookie stock storage and pickup.

Despite the pandemic, the director of marketing and communications, Jaime Alvarez, said local troops have continued to persevere.

“I think there’s a lot to be said that even our littlest Daisy’s are working together as a team to continue to be successful in that program, to raise funds for their troop to gain those business and entrepreneur skills but to still have fun and be safe while doing it,” said Alvarez.

The 2022 cookie program will run from Jan. 11-March 27.

The annual fundraiser helps troops power Girl Scout activities for the year through experiences like community service, highest award projects, badge work, summer camp, travel, and more—all while girls gain important entrepreneurial and life skills.

Proceeds, after paying the baker, stay local and are also used to maintain GSNYPENN’s properties and programs for its girl and adult members throughout the year.

Girl Scouts would need the use of any locations from mid-February through the end of March. GSNYPENN will provide insurance information for businesses and organizations. Those who can assist will receive publicity through the Girl Scout Cookie Finder app and website, council social media, and local cookie season advertising—which, in turn, helps drive additional customers to these local businesses and locations.

If your business or organization can help local Girl Scouts during cookie season in any way, please contact Ray Mulno at rmulno@gsnypenn.org or 315.698.9400 x2022.

GSNYPENN serves girls in K-12 across 26 counties: Allegany, Broome, Cayuga, Chemung, Chenango, Cortland, Delaware, Herkimer, Jefferson, Lewis, Madison, Oneida, Onondaga, Ontario, Oswego, Otsego, St. Lawrence, Schuyler, Seneca, Steuben, Tioga, Tompkins, Wayne and Yates in New York and Bradford and Tioga in Pennsylvania.
