Aloni Herra and Violet DayChief, members of Gallup’s local Girl Scout Troop, received the Silver Award, the second highest award given by Girl Scouts of America for a special project to benefit pediatric patients. With the help of pediatrician, Dr. Michelle Stam-MacLaren, the girls created “Book Bags” for children who are admitted to the hospital and for their siblings. The bags contain reading books, coloring books, bookmarks and crayons. Due to COVID-19, Aloni and Violet have not been able to place the bags in the hospital. However, as soon as they get clearance, the girls will bring the bags to the Medical Surgical/Pediatrics Unit in the hospital for young patients at RMCHCS and their brothers and sisters.
