Several years ago Caroline Tippitt was with a friend who visited Fort Sanders Sevier Emergency Room while vacationing in the area. Her young friend, who was 3-years-old at the time, was given an activity bag by caregivers at the emergency room.
This act of compassion inspired Tippitt who is now a freshman at Sevier County High School. Recently, Tippitt took on a project in an effort to earn her Sevier county Girl Scout Silver Award. The award requires participating Girl Scouts to commit 50 hours of her time to complete a community project she is passionate about that could be sustained by others.
Taking the initiative, Tippitt began tirelessly asking for donations and gathering materials to create 50 activity bags to be given to children receiving emergency care. Each of the bags are filled with activity books, colored pencils, art supplies and other activities that help young emergency room patients take their minds off their troubles and make their visit less stressful.
