Pack 146, Wolf Cub Scouts (2nd grade boys) organized and led a used children’s book drive. Their goal was 100 books. The boys made signs and donation boxes for their buildings, presented to their classes, and went through their own books for donations. In total, the boys collected 383 books!
As St. Francis is our Cub Scout Chartered Organization, we set up a bin of board books and easy readers for the cry room. Several new books were also generously donated. These will be used for holiday gift giving.

The schools include Connors, Elysian Charter, Hoboken Charter and Primary Prep. Our Pack 146 Wolf Scouts:
