— Local Girl Scout Troop #119 recently lent a helping hand to the Hailey's Hope Foundation by packing 200 care packages and gift-wrapping 75 disposable cameras for local families with babies in the neonatal intensive-care unit at the Rowley Birthing Center at Orange Regional Medical Center in Middletown.

"We are so thrilled to be able to help this wonderful charity," said Troop Leader Marie Denardo.

"Hailey's Hope is making a tremendous difference in the lives of NICU families, and we are proud to be a part of that," said Hailey's Hope Board Member Debra Randazzo. "Volunteering their time and all of their hard work will bring comfort to families in need and will also help these Girl Scouts earn their gold badge. It is exciting to see young girls putting other peoples needs first and working together to positively impact their community. We greatly appreciate their support."

The Hailey's Hope Foundation, based in Goshen, was established in 2007 to support the needs of families with premature and critically ill babies hospitalized in New York-area neonatal intensive-care units and improve the quality of NICU care. It partners with Maria Fareri Children's Hospital at Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla, Orange Regional Medical Center in Middletown, Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital-New York Presbyterian in New York City, and The Children's Hospital at Albany Medical Center in Albany.
