CHICAGO | Cub Scout Pack 773, which meets at Annunciata Parish on the East Side, will participate in Operation Care Package, http://www.operationcarepackages.org/ which is dedicated to providing care packages to military serving the United States around the world.

The current focus is trying to collect tube socks and granola bars to be included in the care packages. Operation Care Package typically sends out 10,000 packages during the holiday season, so there is a great need for supplies. The Pack will be focusing on collecting donations of new tube socks and/or boxes of granola bars. If you would like to make a donation contact Lisa Sowa-Downs at queenmamalisa@sbcglobal.net to arrange for a pickup or drop off of the items.
