The Girl Scouts of Nassau County (GSNC) will spend its final week in its longtime facility located at 110 Ring Rd. in Garden City while preparing to undergo extensive renovations. The move, scheduled for the first week of July, will provide the GSNC corporate offices, Cookie Cupboard and Girl Scout Shop with a short-term home in Hicksville.
“This transition into our new temporary office in Hicksville would not be possible without the understanding and support we have received from everyone who is part of the Girl Scouts of Nassau County,” said Donna Ceravolo, executive director, Girl Scouts of Nassau County. “We have been in our current headquarters for more than 50 years and we are so excited for the much-needed renovations that will help us better serve the 23,000 Girl Scouts members.”
The planned renovations will be executed by design firm Danita Otruba Architect of Westbury and are anticipated to be completed summer 2017.
The headquarters will receive much-needed structural updates including a new roof, windows and insulation which will provide overall cost savings on utilities, security and technology system renovations. Additionally, the interior will undergo several cosmetic changes, including updates to the kitchen area, a redesign of the existing Girl Scout Shop, a new Volunteer Resource Center and a showcase for the council’s Living History collection of Girl Scout uniforms and treasures from several decades. The changes to the first floor will also add much needed space for meetings and programs.
Troop leaders, Girl Scouts, parents and volunteers can visit the leased property at 325 Duffy Ave. in Hicksville beginning mid-July.
To volunteer, reconnect, donate or join, visit or contact Donna Rivera-Downey at 516 741-2550.
