Girl Scout Troop assembles comfort bags for families at Stony Brook Children’s Hospital
Girl Scout Troop 4212, based in Flushing, New York, recently assembled more than 150 comfort bags with inspirational messages for families with sick children to be delivered to the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) NY Metro Family Room at Stony Brook Children’s Hospital.
The bags were dropped off at the Ronald McDonald House in New Hyde Park. 
“This was an incredibly selfless gesture of kindness and love, coming right on the heels of Valentine’s Day,” said Matt Campo, CEO of RMHC NYM. “We’re so grateful for this genuine expression of love from these Girls Scouts.” 
The Family Room is a 900 square-foot room equipped with a kitchen area, laundry facility and shower, all to keep families close to their ill children in the hospital. 
Volunteers serve beverages and snacks for when families need a little lift or are hungry after a long day.
