The 2022 cookie program has come to an end. Troops in the Girl Scouts of NYPENN Pathways (GSNYPENN) Council sold a total of 1,437,162 boxes of cookies – and donated more than 25,000 more – during this year’s program, according to a press release. Sales ran from January 11 to mid-April, after it was extended due to supply chain issues.

Their success is a testament to their entrepreneurial and leadership skills, and the continued support of their families, friends, and communities.”
