GSHPA Mission Moments

Happy New Year!! Who's ready for Cookie Season?

  • Visit our Badge Kit store for holiday gifts for your Girl Scout!
  • Happy New Year, to you and your girl! We are so excited about all of the things we have lined up for 2021. As you are aware, January kicks off Girl Scout Cookie Season, and we have so many great resources being put together for you and your girl to make the most out of this season.

    Cookie season is a family affair! The Cookie Entrepreneur Family pin collection is the best way to get the most out of Girl Scout Cookie season. Earning a pin with your girl not only builds in high-quality time together but also gives your whole family a taste of the action—sweet! 

    Start your collection today, and get ready to rock your Girl Scout pride all season long.

Bringing holiday cheer to the community

  • Girl Scout Juliette Mariska of Luzerne County honored service men and women—fallen, active, and veteran—by laying wreaths in partnership with Wreaths Across America at the Sunnyside Cemetery in Tunkhannock, Pa.
  • New Daisy Troop 40085 completed their first service project by decorating a holiday tree along a busy road in their town with homemade ornaments to bring smiles to the community.

Parade for a cause

  • Logo for Gold Award Girl Scouts
  • Service Unit 157 marches in an annual Toys for Tots parade. This year, the parade was replaced with a drive-thru Parade of Lights at Camp Hill's Siebert Park. Cars drove thru for 3 nights and the entrance fee was an unwrapped toy. SU 157’s display theme was 'Holiday Camping' - complete with a campsite, decorated Christmas trees with ornaments made by troops, a blow-up Santa, hand made deer, and light up doves. The event collected 7 truckloads of toys as 1700 cars drove thru over the 3 nights.

Planting a seed and watching it grow

  • Vanessa proudly wears her extended vest to show off all of her earned patches.
  • Members of Troop 32624, as part of their Take Action project, volunteered at the Back Mountain Food Garden in Lehman, PA from May – October 2020. The Daisies planted flowers they grew from seed and other flowers donated by the troop. The Brownies also painted birdhouses to be placed throughout the garden. Over the course of their project, they grew and donated over 800 lbs of fresh produce.
