On Wednesday, February 7, The Nantucket Girl Scouts Troop 64889 paid a visit to the Nantucket Cottage Hospital’s Labor & Deliver Department to drop off 16 baby blankets that they had created themselves. There were six girl scouts in attendance, all from the 2nd and 3rd grades.
Sarah Trottier, RN, Nurse Director of Perinatal Services, commented, “We are so grateful to the Girl Scouts and their troop leaders for this very thoughtful gift. We can’t wait to present the blankets to the next 16 babies born here at NCH.”
“Part of the Girl Scout mission is to encourage community involvement and to teach the girls the importance of generosity,” said Scout Leader Elise Norton. Fellow Scout Leader, Jennie Cook added, “We see this as an important step for the girls to fully understand the positive impact their efforts make.”
