Girl Scouts honor newborn during Girl Scout Week

Green River’s Girl Scouts honored the first girl born during National Girl Scout Week March 6-12 at Memorial Hospital of Sweetwater County with a special basket of girl goodies.

Girl Scout Week basketRanging from Kindergarten to High School Seniors, the Daisy, Brownie, Junior, Cadette, Senior, and Ambassador troops all worked together to make a special basket filled with baby items including blankets, clothes, toys, shoes and more. The basket was delivered to the hospital Monday, March 7, with a special message: The Girl Scouts welcome our newest, future Girl Scout! The basket was presented to the lucky family who welcomed their baby girl on Sunday, March 6.

“It is really rewarding and exciting to see the community support our patients,” said Megan Jacobson, MHSC Director of Obstetrics & Women’s Health. “When we receive donations to give to our new moms and families, it’s exciting and heartwarming to show them just how much love is in our community. We are extremely grateful that organizations like the Girl Scouts think of our patients and we are very thankful they have made a fun way to kick off Girl Scout week by showering a new baby girl with gifts.”

For over ten years, during Girl Scout Week, the Green River Girl Scouts have donated a basket of baby items to the first baby girl born during Girl Scout Week and looks forward to continuing the tradition.
