Event cancelled for 2016

On behalf of Girl Scouts of Oregon and Southwest Washington, we have to say that due to unforeseen circumstances surrounding the Girl Scout Christmas Breakfast for the Homeless, we are officially canceling the event for this year.

We were unable to organize an event this year which would provide an experience that our community has come to expect. We are looking to regroup in the coming spring for a full event in the winter of 2017.

Donations of food, clothing and toys which we have already received will be coordinated to be utilized by other groups within the Washington County area to get these items out to those who still have a need.

We will still be looking for committee members in the spring to help round out our team of volunteer leadership. Look forward to communication out to the volunteer base in the spring.

Please email us at info@christmas-breakfast.org if you have any questions, concerns or want to help out in the upcoming year.

Happy holidays,
The WCGSCB Committee and GSOSW Council

Calling all volunteers!

Hello fellow volunteers,

To start off, thank you for the time you have given to this cause. Your efforts make a real difference in our community every year. Last year, through everyone’s hard work, we were able to give out food boxes, toys, clothes, and a warm meal to over 700 individuals.

With this year’s event approaching, we are looking to meet up with all who would like to be involved in coordinating the planning and execution behind the scenes. Historically this has been done just by a few committee members, some of which have worn many hats. This year, we would like to enlist the help of people that want deeper involvement in the event and spread the effort out among more people.

We have a variety of positions available, with written documentation for each role and committee members available who have done the majority of the roles in the past, for mentoring.

If this sounds like something that you would like to be more involved in, please meet with us at the Patterson Elementry cafeteria (261 NE Lenox Street, Hillsboro, 97124) from 6:30-8:00pm on 10/7/2016.

Please let us know if you have any questions before the meeting.

Warm regards,
The 2016 WCGSCB Committee

Welcome to the 2015 year!

We are excited to announce that plans are in the works for the WCGSCB 2015 year.  Last year we served well over 700 individuals on Christmas day, and couldn’t do it without the time and dedication of our planning committee, sponsors and volunteers.

While community outreach and donation planning is underway by a few dedicated volunteers, we are still in need of help on our planning committee.  If you want to help out your larger community under the Girl Scouts umbrella, please contact volunteer@christmas-breakfast.org and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.  We meet a couple times a month until the main event.

Also, look for set-up day and event day volunteer registration within the next couple weeks.

Looking forward to another great year!

The WCGSCB Committee
