Hall County Girl Scout Troop No. 13578 recently dropped off presents for 13 local children they sponsored at the United Methodist Children’s Home in Gainesville. Each Scout sponsored at least one or two children for Christmas by donating new practical items, toys, plush items, shoes, clothing, accessories and food. Pictured with the Girl Scouts is Sondra Rogers, director of United Methodist Children’s Home.
