Moraga Girl Scout Troop 30072, all Campolindo sophomores, held a holiday party Dec. 12 for homeless families at Shelter Inc. in Pittsburg. The Scouts decorated gingerbread houses, cookies, ornaments and other craft items with the children and their parents. The Troop also shared a meal with the families and played with the "sugar-amped tots" well into the evening. Shelter Inc. tries to find people to adopt all homeless families during the holidays to ensure they feel cared for at that time of year. After adopting all families living at the shelter, the Scouts enjoyed selecting and wrapping gifts from a wish list the family members provided. Seeing the joy on the faces of the children and thankfulness of the families warmed their hearts. The Troop encourages others to adopt a homeless family next year.
