Pack 23 Toy Drive Doubles Previous Record

Scouts collect over 450 toys for Children's Hospital

This year's Pack 23 Toy Drive was a tremendous success, collecting over 450 items for patients at Children's Hospital!  The Pack would like to extend our sincere thanks to all Swanson families and community members who donated to the drive this year.  Your generous contributions allowed us to double last year's donation and brighten the holidays for even more hospitalized children.  Special thanks, too, to Swanson principal Kori Hartman for supporting our efforts to open the drive to the greater community.

The Pack 23 Toy Drive for Children's Hospital is an annual event conducted in honor of Swanson student and Pack 23 scout Benjamin Levie, who passed away in 2009.  The event is held each year from mid November through mid December.
