More than a hundred people flocked to a New York City cafe on Thursday to attend the first Girl Scout cookie sale held by Troop 6000 - which is made up of young girls who live in homeless shelters in New York. This is the first troop to serve homeless girls in the United States, and they hope to bring at least 500 girls into the troop.

The troop, which has members that all live in homeless shelters in New York City, was formed a year ago. They're aiming to sell a record 6,000 boxes of cookies by Friday. She is a junior Girl Scout, she said, and was wearing a green uniform accordingly.

"I was scared, I was lonely, I didn't know what to do", said a member of the troop. All of the net revenue raised through the Girl Scout Cookie Program with the local council and troops.

Burgess was originally "a bit worried" when she started the troop with only eight members, including three of her daughters.

Retired military personnel residing at the Armed Forces Veteran's Home in Gulfport received cookies this season from Troops 3402 and 6346 from St. James Catholic Church. "That's what Troop 6000 is all about", explains the Girl Scouts of Greater New York website.

Rosanny couldn't remember how long she and her family had been homeless. She joined the Girl Scouts previous year, she said. She said her favourite cookies were "the mint ones". "The biggest impact that we see and when you talk to the girls you'll hear them say, is that they belong to something, they have a sisterhood within the other Girl Scouts", said Meredith Maskara of the Girl Scouts of Greater New York.

In a public letter on Wednesday, Marina Park, the CEO of Girl Scouts of Northern California, set out to dispel confusion that has arisen since the Boy Scouts began their efforts to recruit girls. "I like that we're all sisters and that we can all help each other every day", she said.
