Cub Scouts make winter warmer for third-graders

Brighton Cub Scout Pack 347 from Maltby Middle School recently helped make the holidays a lot brighter for some children.

The Cub Scouts originally set out to identify a local family who they would purchase presents for during the holidays. The Cub Scouts eventually decided, though, that they would adopt 26 third-graders in Michigan.

The Cub Scouts had received word of a third-grade class that needed hats and mittens this winter. So, the pack set out to collect enough cans in order to buy hats and mittens for their Michigan classmates. This was the first part.

After returning the cans, the Cub Scouts then looked for the type of hats and mittens that would be warm enough for the winter.
