Granger Girl Scout receives Gold Award for NICU project
ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. -- A Granger Girl Scout received the Gold Award for her project to provide supplies and information to families whose children are in the NICU at Memorial Hospital.
Maggie Sullivan was inspired to do the project after her brother Joe was born prematurely. He is doing well now, but other families are not so lucky.
For one part of the project, she organized a cabinet and a cart in the NICU with supplies for babies in the NICU.
She also gathered information nurses use in the event of a death and put it into a binder and slide show presentation.
"They receive these boxes, the parents do, which these just have blankets and such and cards and they can receive grief information, like little pamphlets. And they do hand and foot molds so all the supplies for that is in here too," Maggie said.
Maggie volunteers at the hospital and plans to pursue a career in medicine.
