CEDAR GROVE, NJ - Girl Scout troop #20510 of Cedar Grove is collecting donations for Mary’s Place By the Sea, a facility that supports women with cancer, from March 13 to April 7.
Mary’s Place isupports women with cancer through integrative services which complement their medical treatment and support their healing: mind, body and soul. Their custom, 10-bedroom home is located just two blocks from the ocean in Ocean Grove, NJ.
Guests are invited to stay up to three days before, during and after treatment at no cost to them. The Girl Scouts chose Mary’s Place because several Cedar Grove residents have spent time there including one special parent at Memorial Middle School, Dawn Nesto.
The troop met with Nesto and she explained how beneficial the services at Mary’s Place were to her. Mary’s Place is run solely on donations and the generous help of volunteers.
