At Westbury Toyota, we have always had a strong commitment to supporting the Westbury (and greater Long Island) community. It’s something we take pride in and something we fully intend to keep on doing. To that end, we’re excited to announce our latest community collaboration: Westbury Toyota and the Girl Scouts of America are teaming up for a Girl Scouts Cookie Drive!
If you’ve been craving some of the delicious Girl Scout cookies, you’ll want to make sure and mark this date on your calendar: On March 16th, running from 11:00 A.M. to 1:00 P.M., the annual Girl Scouts cookie drive will be hosted right here at Westbury Toyota.
We’d love to see anyone and everyone from the Westbury and Long Island communities. Grab your friends and family and stop by on the day to support one of America’s finest nonprofit organizations AND get your hands on the tastiest cookies around!
Aside from a chance to indulge in everyone's favorite confectionary treats, stopping by for this event is a great way to show your support for the youth of Long Island. Without our help, these future leaders won't have the resources needed to embark upon all forms of civic service and teambuilding exercises.
The Girl Scouts organization guides and empowers the younger generation of girls, teaching them how to access their full potential. Through a large array of fun and exciting experiences such as field-trips, camps, environmental stewardships, cultural exchanges, and sports workshops, the Girls Scouts help young women build character and confidence. They are encouraged to learn to relate with others through empathy and understanding, to regard others with respect, to make sound decisions based on their deeper values, and to use the leadership and cooperation abilities they learn during their time in the Girl Scouts to make contributions to society as a whole.
“Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.”- Mission statement, Girl Scouts of America.
The Girls Scouts are one of the oldest and most established non-profit organizations in America. As explained on the official website, the Girl Scouts were founded in 1912 by Juliette Gordon Low. She believed that it was crucial to foster independence and self-sufficiency in girls so that they could go on to become women of confidence and importance. Her ideals became those of the Girl Scouts and have not only carried on for more than 100 years, but have also become a global movement. In fact, USA Girl Scouts Overseas allows girls in more than 92 countries to participate in troops and groups, including places such as Bahrain, the Philippines, and Poland.
One of the most important aspects of the Girl Scouts is giving back to the community, and it’s something that they – like we here at Westbury Toyota – are always ready to do! Fostering a sense of goodwill and charitability is a focus of this organization, and because of that Girl Scout groups and troops all across America are always ready and willing to hop into a situation where they can contribute meaningfully to their communities.
There are two types of community projects the Girl Scouts engage in:
We at Westbury Toyota see a lot of our own community-minded focus in this commendable youth organization, and that’s why we’re more than happy to be the host of this year’s annual Girl Scouts Cookie Drive. We’ll be bringing the community together in order to support a truly fantastic cause, and we encourage you to stop by on March 16th in order to help out a local group – and score yourself some tasty Girl Scout cookies!
