Sweet! Girl Scouts donate 6,000 boxes of trademark treats to ChristianaCare

They arrived in 10 expertly packed cars bearing the sweetest of gifts. The Girl Scouts of the Chesapeake Bay pulled up at Christiana Hospital this week to donate 6,000 boxes of cookies in 450 cases to caregivers at ChristianaCare.

That’s 144,000 cookies.

“This incredibly generous donation is indicative of the Girl Scout tradition of helping the community,” said Sharon Kurfuerst, Ed.D., OTR/L, FACHE, FAOTA, FABC, ChristianaCare’s system chief operating officer, and a Girl Scout alumna.

As Thin Mints, Tagalogs, Samoas and S’mores stacked up, Kurfuerst said, “on behalf of our caregivers, I want to give a huge thank you to the Girl Scouts. It’s another example of how generous our business community has been in supporting ChristianaCare and all of us who are providing care on the front lines.”
