Girl Scouts of Oregon and Southwest Washington to Host Christmas Breakfast for the Homeless

The Hillsboro Argus reports that Girl Scouts from the Girl Scouts of Oregon and Southwest Washington are collecting canned food, clothing and toys for the Washington County Girl Scout Christmas Breakfast for the Homeless.

The Washington County Girl Scout Christmas Breakfast for the Homeless is coordinated by volunteers. The event was started in 2000 when local Girl Scouts recognized a growing need among their community's low income population. More than ten years later, local Girl Scouts, families and community volunteers still gather at the Hillsboro Senior Center to provide Washington County residents with a hot breakfast, clothing and food boxes "to-go." The event serves more than 1,500 people annually.
