NYC Girl Scout troop hopes to sell 60,000 boxes cookies

NEW YORK — Craving Thin Mints or Samoas? Now's your chance to pick up a box!

Girl Scout Troop 6000 is made up of girls from all five boroughs living in homeless shelters .

This year, there are more than 600 members, doubling from last year’s participation.

These young ladies are hoping to reach their goal of selling 60,000 boxes of cookies! Reaching that milestone could help send all 600-plus members to Girl Scouts Summer Camp.

So far, they have sold about 10%.

PIX11 joins the scouts as they work to sell cookies at the Kellogg's Cafe on East 17th Street in Union Square. The last day to buy boxes is Friday, April 26 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Other troops are pitching in this year, selling from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. They too are raising money for Troop 6000.
