Garden City, NY (May 17, 2016) – The Girl Scouts of Nassau County (GSNC) will be moving into a temporary headquarters in Hicksville, N.Y., while their longtime facility located at 110 Ring Road, Garden City N.Y., undergoes extensive renovations. The move, scheduled for July 1, 2016, will provide the GSNC corporate offices, Cookie Cupboard and Girl Scout Shop with a short-term home while the regional Girl Scouts council headquarters undergoes a complete overhaul.
“We are very grateful to everyone who is part of the Girl Scouts of Nassau County for being understanding and supportive as we transition to our new temporary office in Hicksville,” stated Donna Ceravolo, Executive Director, Girl Scouts of Nassau County. “After more than 50 years, our building is in need of several updates, which will help us better serve the 23,000 Girl Scouts member.”
The planned renovations will be executed by design firm Danita Otruba Architect of Westbury, N.Y., 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.
To prepare for the move, the Girl Scout Shop will be offering 15 percent off all in stock apparel (excluding uniforms and camp items) in store only, while supplies last at the Garden City location.
Troop leaders, Girl Scouts, parents and volunteers can visit the leased property at 325 Duffy Ave, Hicksville N.Y. 11801 beginning mid-July 2016.
