Scouts helping Blue Star Moms

Boy Scouts of America Troop 36 will help the Blue Star Moms Chapter 101 in its drive next week for items to send to the troops overseas. Items like lip balm, gum, AA batteries, games and DVDs will be welcome.

The collection takes place from 9 a.m.-3 p.m., Saturday, May 17, at the Danville Veterans Hall, 400 Hartz Ave. The Scouts will help take donations and sort and prepare items for delivery to the Middle East.

Other suggested donations are single-serving food items (tuna pouches, chicken creations), drink mixes (Kool Aid, Minute Maid packets), new cotton T-shirts in large sizes and new cotton socks. The troops also appreciate letters from people back at home.
