New Fairfield Girl Scout Troop 50031 helps Children in Need

Wednesday, July 08, 2009 - Danbury, CT

Last week, Daisy Girl Scout Troop 50031 became the newest members of Danbury Hospital’s Kid Care Club by donating books to the Department of Pediatrics. Troop 50031 from New Fairfield is composed of ten, young girls and led by troop leaders Christine Fennell and Nancy Hesselbacher. Mrs. Fennell describes the group of girls as “a quiet troop who enjoys going out of their way to help a friend in need.” The girls decided to donate the funds from their annual spring fund raiser to support Pediatric patients at Danbury Hospital. Daisy Troop 50031 raised money by recycling bottles and cans from home and purchased a box of children’s books to donate to the Department of Pediatrics. These young girls wanted to help other young children and provide fun books to make their stay at the hospital more enjoyable.

Besides donating children’s books, the New Fairfield Girl Scout Troop has also donated hospitality bags to the Emergency Room at Danbury Hospital. This past Thanksgiving, the troop donated two large boxes of necessities to the Danbury Women’s Shelter. In December, the girls baked cookies and decorated holiday cards for the Veterans.

The Kids Care Club at Danbury Hospital encourages children up to age 18 to make a donation to Danbury Hospital in support of the Department of Pediatrics. Children make donations in many ways: giving up allowance for one week, organizing penny drives or lemonade stands, or, like Troop 50031, raising funds and purchasing books to donate to Pediatrics.
