Many thanks to Luna Park for donating $51,233 to Girl Scout Troop 6000 in coordination with The Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York on July 23.

Alex Zamperla, president of Luna Park, presented Meridith Maskara, chief executive officer of Girl Scouts of the USA, with a donation check at City Hall.

“We are extremely grateful to have the opportunity to support Troop 6000,” said Zamperla. “Our city benefits from the remarkable programs, scholarships, and activities provided by Troop 6000.”

Troop 6000 is a troop specially designed to serve the thousands of girls living in the New York City shelter system.

The Troop was launched in 2017 at a single family shelter, and now the Girl Scouts, in partnership with the city, the Mayor’s Fund, and private-sector partners, is aiming to significantly expand the work to several new sites around the city.

The funds were raised during the 2018 Opening Day at Luna Park.

All donations received by the Mayor’s Fund will support a new position in Troop 6000 and the expansion of the Troop to 15 sites across the city.
