Girl Scouts Join the Burbank, IL Community

Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana (GSGCNWI) is excited to add a new gathering place in Burbank, IL.

A ribbon-cutting grand opening event was held on June 10, 2023, to celebrate the gathering place. Over 150 people attended and enjoyed a scavenger hunt, received take-home program kits, enjoyed outdoor games in our parking lot, and had tasty treats from a snow cone truck.

Attendees shopped, made new friends, and the community welcomed us with open arms. The energy truly is indescribable.

The new gathering place offers a shop with shelves filled with merchandise, supplies, uniforms, and more. There is also great office space for volunteers and troop leaders to use for holding service unit meetings, planning recruitment events, and attending programs with their troop.

Special thanks to Burbank Mayor Dan M. Foy, 1st Ward Alderman Barb Gagle, Chamber of Commerce President Barbara Langnes, Chamber of Commerce Vice President Meghan Giera, Lieutenant Guy Ott, and many more who joined us on this special day for GSGCNWI.

The Burbank Gathering Place is located at 4850 West 87th Street, Burbank, IL 60459, and is open for in-person shopping and order pickup on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, from 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
