Girl Scouts Spreading Holiday Cheer!

California's Orange County Register has a photo gallery of more than 300 Aliso Viejo Girl Scouts from 32 troops painting holiday-themed scenes on store windows for Aliso Viejo merchants. Girl Scouts of all ages, including Daisy's, Brownies, Juniors, Cadettes, and Ambassadors, painted store windows all over town and the windows will remain painted until after the holidays.

In Michigan, C and G News reports that Girl Scouts across the area have been in the holiday giving mood again this season - that includes Eastpointe Troop 74240, which spent some time feeding those in need at the Capuchin Soup Kitchen in Detroit Nov. 27. Troops in Southeast Michigan collected toys and food for a holiday meal. Eastpointe’s troop headed to the Capuchin Soup Kitchen as part of their work toward a “Home Is Where the Heart Is” Interest Project Award. The “Home Is Where the Heart Is” award is about addressing homelessness in their community and because of the Troop's enthusiasm for working at the soup kitchen, they are planning to go back in May.

What are Girl Scouts doing to spread Holiday cheer in your community?
