VISTA, Calif. (KGTV) - More than 300 burglars broke into dozens of apartments in Vista Tuesday. It was a part of the annual “Breaking and Entering” event hosted by Solutions for Change.  Solutions for Change is a North County non-profit that helps homeless families get back on their feet through education and guidance with a heavy emphasis on accountability.

The annual holiday event allows volunteers to enter apartments provided to formerly-homeless families to set up Christmas decorations and leave presents behind.

“It demonstrates the power of community,” said one of Solutions for Change’s Directors Paul Webster.
