Local Girl Scout Troop 3327, led by parent volunteer Jenny Bradshaw, assembled 90 layette kits for Mercy Hospital's maternity ward. Every woman who gives birth at the hospital receives a layette kit, including two each of cloth diapers, shirts or onesies, washcloths, diaper pins, and a receiving blanket. The layette items were donated to Floris United Methodist Church's alternative giving initiative this past Christmas. The kits are deeply appreciated by the women who give birth at Mercy, most of whom have very little money. We are grateful to Troop 3327 and Floris UMC for their generous donation of time and materials.
