Franklin, TN–This one is sure to make you smile. Maya, Gabby, and Katie, three Cadettes from Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee Troop 510, took on a special project to earn their Silver Award. They decided to make gift bags for the young patients of the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital Vanderbilt at Williamson Medical Center.
Each Cadette spent roughly 50 hours hand-crafting their share of the bags!
Afterwards, they filled the bags with toys, art supplies, Play-Doh, and more.

The bags will now be given out to our young patients, to help brighten their days during their stay with us. Thank you so much Maya, Gabby, and Katie for your hard work and generosity.
If you want to help our children’s hospital, please consider the in-need items found on our Wish List. If you wish to make a monetary donation, the Williamson Medical Center Foundation offers several different ways one can be made.
