Troop 485 (Franklin Square) scouts (Thomas, Scott, Ethan, Antonio), several years ago, voted to forgo a gift exchange and instead, use the money to purchase items to be given to a local family to help improve their Christmas holiday. This year, the scouts again shopped at a local Target and purchased clothing and toys valued at over $500, to be distributed to their “adopted family”! AND the bonus – the actual cost was about $370 thanks to a couple of coupons!
Thank you to all who donated their $15 gift money. This is the third year troop 485 has adopted a family.
Special thanks to the parents who drove tonight and helped out
Super special thanks to Carmela for lending a hand to collect and count.
AND super duper special thanks to Therese for coordinating – wrapping and delivering.
Congratulations Troop 485 for continuing to help those who are less fortunate and brightening their holiday season. Bully!
Deb and Chris
