Girl Scout troop visits Lakewood patients

STAPLES — Staples Girl Scout Troop 993 visited Lakewood Health System, bringing ornaments for hospital patients and the hospital Christmas tree.

On Dec. 20, Lakewood obstetrics nurse and Girl Scout troop leader Melinda Guzman orchestrated, in collaboration with the troop co-leaders, the visit on behalf of the Girl Scouts to patients who are hospitalized during the holiday season.

“The girls were excited about making gifts and personally visiting each patient to wish them peace, health and happiness during the holidays,” Guzman said in a news release. “The girls certainly have their hearts in the right place. I think the patients appreciated it.”
