Healthcare workers on the front lines of COVID-19 have the respect and admiration of our entire Girl Scout community. Here are some of the ways Girl Scouts from around eastern Massachusetts are giving back to these heroes and keeping up the long tradition of Girl Scouts helping out in times of need.
Haverhill: Daisy Troop 70343 sent a variety of Girl Scout Cookies to the staff at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston.
Hingham: Girl Scout Junior Giada S. of Troop 62321 teamed up with her dad to make 300 masks for Newton-Wellesley Hospital and the local VA Hospital.
Medford: Girl Scouts from Medford donated more than 850 boxes of Girl Scout Cookies to seven local hospitals, including Lawrence Memorial Urgent Care, Massachusetts General Hospital, Lahey Hospital, North Shore Medical Center Union Hospital, Mount Auburn Hospital, and Melrose-Wakefield Hospital.
Medway: Girl Scout Troop 62490 made cards and donated Girl Scout Cookies to a Newton-Wellesley Hospital unit handling the COVID-19 crisis.
Westford: Brownie Troop 72339 donated their remaining Girl Scout Cookie inventory to their local food pantry, fire department, police department, and hospital. Girl Scout Mila M. also helped make masks that were donated to nurses at Lahey Hospital in Burlington.
We are so proud of our girls and their families for supporting our amazing healthcare workers and first responders. If your girls are also giving back to those protecting our communities, please share your story.
