Local Cub Scouts show they care - 46 packages to be sent overseas

Employees of the Littleton Coin Company held a month-long drive to collect supplies, helping Cub Scout Pack 209 to send a total of 46 packages to service men and women overseas.

– Littleton, NH – Littleton-area Cub Scout Pack 209 recently took part in a service project at the Littleton Coin Company where they helped assemble care packages for U.S. Military troops overseas. The scouts approached the company earlier in the year, to see if they could partner with us on an item drive to demonstrate service, and bring them one step closer to receiving their Community Service belt loop. Littleton Coin employees were eager to help. During the month of May, a drive to collect personal care, entertainment and food items for servicemen and women was held. Employees and scouts also wrote letters of thanks and appreciation for those serving. On June 3, the cub scouts arrived and packaged up the goods and letters into 46 individual boxes. Den leader Christie Reardon said, "The kids really enjoyed the entire process. They loved packing up the items and really cared about who was going to get the final boxes." The care packages will be sent to Anysoldier.com - an organization that provides a list of contacts serving overseas to receive and distribute care packages directly to military service members.
