“Do a good turn daily” is a core precept of the Boy Scouts of America, and something that three young members of the Linwood Cub Scouts Pack 39 Wolf Den have certainly embraced. After several months of fundraising, scouts William Gerhardt, Grant Miller, and Theodore Coville presented Shore Medical Center officials with a donation of $175.80 on June 11 to benefit its Pediatric Care Unit, Shore’s separate child-friendly emergency and inpatient area designed especially for children to help make the hospital experience less scary. The Pediatric Unit is staffed 24/7 by pediatric specialists from St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children and Onsite Neonatal Partners.
