Woodside Elementary School's Girl Scouts have a tradition of sponsoring a schoolwide Mother-Daughter Service Night, and this year's event was hosted by fourth-grade Troop 30793.

Troops take part in service activities that benefit the community, and 41 mother/grandmother-daughter pairs participated in a full night of activities, said Lori Cattarusa.

First-grade Daisy Troop 31987 collected more than 100 coats for the One Warm Coat drive before and after school and during the service night.

Third-grade Brownie Troop 32709 provided all the pieces and taught those at the event how to make tie blankets for babies and toddlers, and delivered them to the Bay Area Crisis Nursery.

Juniors of Troop 30793 brought supplies to create Birthday Bags for families in need, and 75 bags of cake mix, frosting, balloons, candles, party hats and paper supplies were assembled for the Monument Crisis Center's food bank.

A station where place mats and cards were made to accompany meals for seniors unable to leave their homes was sponsored by the fifth-grade Juniors Troop 31941. The personal notes were delivered to Meals on Wheels of Contra Costa.
