Girl Scouts of Western New York hosting a Join-a-Thon today

Girl Scouts of Western New York (GSWNY) 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 on today, Jan. 15, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Throughout the day, GSWNY will take on-the-spot registrations over the phone and in-person registrations during our normal business hours.

Adults must be 18 years of age or older to volunteer and 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 and all those who register during the Join-a-Thon 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 in-person.

New this year is our FREE Slime, Cocoa & Cookies event for new girls to make slime, enjoy delicious Girl Scout cookies & 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 on Wednesday, January 15, from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Girl Scouts of Western New York’s Service Centers, including Jamestown Service Center, 2661 Horton Rd., Jamestown, NY 14701.

Girl Scouts offers the best ALL-GIRL, GIRL-LED leadership development experience for girls in the world where their specific needs can be met. Girl Scouts develop a strong sense of self, display positive values, seek challenges, and solve problems in their communities.

Girl Scout registration is open year-round. However, registration outside of the Join-a-Thon won’t offer a chance to win prizes associated with the event. To learn more about girl membership, adult volunteerism, and the Girl Scout Cookie Program visit gswny.org or call 1-888-837-6410.
