Oakland Girl Scouts Spreading Some Holiday Cheer 

The Girl Scout troop in Oakland is once again doing their part to help out those less fortunate in their community.For the third straight year 45 Girl Scouts gathered at the Williams Elementary School in Oakland to decorate and stuff Christmas stockings.When they’re finished the stockings are taken to children staying at the Waterville Homeless shelter during Christmas. The rest of the stockings go to the Oakland Food Pantry and are given to kids whose families come in for their holiday meals. “In Girl Scouts we teach the girls you don’t have to be a big person to make a difference in somebody’s life,” says troop leader Debbie Wentworth. “Even little girls can brighten somebody’s day or do something good for others.”
