In the eighth year running, the girls of Girl Scout Troop 50784 distributed more than 1,000 winter coats and cold weather clothing to people attending the Santa’s Workshop at Dorothy Day Hospitality House in Danbury last week.

The program was started by Ridgefield High graduate Georgie Wood, who is now a sophomore at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. The distribution of coats was passed down from Wood’s Girl Scout Troop 51091 to the eighth graders in Troop 50784.
