Volunteer Spotlight: Troop 705

Local Girl Scout Troop 705 dropped off boxes of what they call, “Port Pillow.” A port is the small tube that a doctor surgically implants under the skin of a child's chest. The child receives medicine directly into the port. A port reduces the number of needle pokes that our young Heroes may need (though they still need a lot of needle pokes!). The Port Pillow is a soft cushion that protects the skin around the port. The girls lovingly sewed and made 297 port pillows. They “wowed” Lisa and Erin with a presentation about why they did the service project. These young ladies achieved the Silver Award, the highest award in Girl Scouts. We are honored that they felt it in their hearts to help other children who are battling against cancer.
