Three Girl Scouts from Troop 40699
in New City earned the Silver Award for their work on the community
project, “Warming Hearts of Rockland.” They helped spread the word about the project,
which provides useful items for chemotherapy and hospice patients. Julia Fahey,
Jaclyn Hughes and Jaclyn Killian, who are members of the Little Tor/Woodglen
elementary schools’ Service Unit, presented information about the community program
to other Girl Scout troops, held a food drive, collected donations and
assembled bags for distribution.
“Warming Hearts of Rockland” supports two specific groups. People starting chemotherapy treatment receive bags with throw blankets, reusable water bottles, pads, pens, hand sanitizer and tissues. “Cradles of Kindness” provides items such as non-perishable snack packs, single-use toothbrushes and lip balm for the families, visitors and patients at United Hospice of Rockland’s Joe Raso Hospice Residence in New City.
