MedWatch Today: Healthcare Hero, Girl Scouts Troop 2518


A local Girl Scouts Troop is putting their skills to great use. Troop 2518 gives to Terry’s House in many different ways, on a regular basis. For that generous service, we are honoring them this week as our Healthcare Heroes.

In Girl Scouts, the young ladies are taught to be friendly, helpful, considerate, caring, courageous, and strong. They’re also taught to be a friend to all, and they spread their friendships to the families at Terry’s House. Troop 2518 has made little care packages for loved ones who are in the hospital, and they’ve cooked dinners for the families staying at Terry’s House. The girls organized a cereal bar in the kitchen, and they have also organized a laundry room for guests to easily wash and dry their clothes.

Murphy Jones is the co-leader and treasurer of Troop 2518. She said, “Then we had two groups working in the children’s play room and one group did all of the art supplies, so they bought a table, they bought art supplies, crayons, pens, pencils, coloring books, those types of things.”

“The girls here within this troop are so helpful, it’s rewarding, contributing just out of the goodness of their hearts is impactful to the families here, let alone they’re doing it for their own, their badge, their bronze, getting those patches, but they’re making a difference here. The impact, if they’re getting a bookshelf, it’s going to be long lasting here for the kids that are coming in,” stated Whitney Horn, the volunteer coordinator at Terry’s House.

There are many ways you can give back to Terry’s House. You can cook a meal, help clean the house, or organize a donation drive. For more information, click here.
