Troop Tuesday: Troop 215 Bring Comfort to Breast Cancer Patients


Having any kind of surgery can be a traumatic experience. Fortunately, Troop 215 came up with an idea to provide extra comfort for breast cancer patients recovering from surgery.

As part of earning their Bronze Award, Troop 215 decided to create Pretty Pockets, a soft flannel pocket that secures post-surgical drains in a discreet way. After collecting and gathering materials from fabric stores, the girls hand sewed the pieces of fabric into beautifully made pockets. Together, they made a total of 215 pockets and delivered them to Banner Gateway Medical Center and Banner Baywood Medical Center.

Troop 215 truly exemplifies the Girl Scout spirit of service and helping others. Great job, girls!
