Troop 31061 raises funds for Viktor's visit Photo provided
Girl Scouts from Lafayette and Pleasant Hill have been working hard on raising money through their annual nut and candy sales to bring an orphaned nine-year old boy from Ukraine to California for an extra special Christmas. Viktor, a 9-year old little boy who has lived in an orphanage for most of his life, will be meeting the troop on December 16th when they greet him at the San Francisco Airport. The girls are very excited to meet Viktor and to be a part of making his Christmas an extra special one. Little Viktor is orphaned and the troop has high hopes he will also meet a family who might adopt him and become his forever family before he returns to Ukraine in January. Troop 31061 will have its final fundraising bake sale on December 9th and 10th at Valhalla Elementary in Pleasant Hill. For more information on how you can help Viktor, please contact Cara Helberg at
