MOUNT PLEASANT, SC – Juliette Gordon Low, founder of Girl Scouts of the USA, was born on October 31, 1860, in Savannah, Georgia. Every year Girl Scouts around the country pick a special service project to commemorate her birthday. This year, fifteen troops East of the Cooper decided to surprise new mothers of baby girls, who were born around October 31 at East Cooper Medical Center, with several gift baskets full of baby items.
These useful baby items were donated by over 100 Girl Scouts in the area. Troop 106, who coordinated the project, also packaged and delivered the baskets to East Cooper Medical Center last week. The girls were greeted by East Cooper’s Director of Women’s Services, Lisa Pinion, who escorted them to the Labor and Delivery department.
The girls eagerly carried all 12 baskets hoping to meet a new baby along the way. They were then allowed to personally deliver a basket to a mom, who had just delivered a baby girl the previous day.
“Moms have been thrilled! I know one of the phrases of the Girl Scout law is to be considerate and caring. These girls demonstrated just what a Girl Scout should do,” commented Lisa Pinion.
