Girl Scouts has a long-lasting and valued history of public service during times of strife. In the face of extended quarantine, school cancellation, and missed milestones during COVID-19, we are so proud to see our girls in eastern Massachusetts continuing to support their neighbors, healthcare heroes, and other people in need.
“We are all in this together…” Brownie Troop 82025 visited quarantined residents of Goddard House Assisted Living with cheers, costumes and signs with positive notes! The girls brought much-needed company to seniors who can’t receive visitors during COVID-19.
Daisy Troop 70807 hosted “Chalk Your Walk Carver Week” for their town in April, inviting residents to decorate driveways and sidewalks to brighten the world during these grey times. And Brownie Troop 82177 made a video thanking essential workers, first responders, and hospital staff.
Putting their quarantine time to good use, Girl Scouts Aisling, Erin, and Siobhan from Troop 76205 made 241 “period packs” with supplies for women in need. Their troop previously made 84 bags and all were donated to I Support the Girls for the troop’s “Girltopia” journey.
Troop 72128 finds many ways to make the world a better place! Gaby sewed face masks for hospital staff, Boston Police, and Boston EMS. Kylie, Natalie, and Hailey chalked sidewalks to spread positive messages. And the troop sent cookies to Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Boston Children’s Hospital, Melrose-Wakefield Hospital, and South Shore Medical Center.
When Senior Troop 85042 learned night shift nurses at South Shore Medical Center missed out on the daytime treats shared by the community, they donated Girl Scout Cookies, as well as veggie trays, fruit salad, and brownies (purchased with the troop’s cookie proceeds).
Saluting our brave service members, Girl Scout Troop 85101 delivered 120 boxes of cookies to the Massachusetts National Guard, 1st Battalion, 101st Field Artillery Regiment in Brockton. Sister Mansfield Troops 62533, 62889, and 70824 all contributed to the cookie donation.
