Local Boy Scout Troop Provides Fuel for Life


    Orinda Boy Scout Troop 237, from the Orinda chapter of Grateful Gatherings, made a very special difference in the lives of one family recently. In one day, hard-working Scouts and families were able to furnish a home for a single dad and his four children who recently transitioned out of homelessness. The family had never had a home where they could feel comfortable or safe. Thanks to the Scouts, they don’t have to sleep on broken beds and can have a family dinner together at one table. According to the Scouts, the 11-year-old daughter broke down when she saw her room. As the family hugged, the eldest son said, “Thank you, this is going to give us fuel for life.”
