Girl Scout Troop 6000

Last November, I joined a group from Girl Scouts of Greater New York to serve Thanksgiving dinner at a homeless shelter in Queens. It was then that we dreamed of a Girl Scout troop created especially for homeless girls. With Troop 6000, that dream became a reality. I’m proud that our district has made history by chartering the first Girl Scout troop for homeless girls. This is among the best and most beautiful things I’ve ever been a part of, and we must expand this program all across our city. On Tuesday, April 25, I was joined by the New York City Council to honor the amazing young women of Troop 6000. Read more about their story at the NYTimes
