Oxford Cub scouts Pack 14 would love to help! When do you need the items by? We do a service project each month. I would love to assign the boys to donate one or two of the items. Perhaps the frisbees or yo yo's or something else the boys can relate to and understand that they are helping the soldiers have a little fun when they are not working so hard to defend out country. I would love to contact Katheryn about this project. Thanks. -Vicki Napomiceno
