Scouts donate items for Marine care packages

May 05, 2009

A Costa Mesa Cub Scout pack has collected food and toiletries for the marine regiment recently adopted by the city, which the scouts will deliver to City Hall on Friday.

Scout Pack 711, based at Christ Lutheran School, is contributing the items for care packages given to troops and their families.

It’s part of an ongoing effort sponsored by Costa Mesa to support the 1st Battalion 5th Regiment of the Marine Corps stationed at Camp Pendleton.

Pack 711 is made up of first- through third-graders, most of whom go to Christ Lutheran School, according to admissions counselor Lisa Olson.

“The scouts at Christ Lutheran School have strong hearts for community service and taking the opportunity to help whenever possible,” Olson said.
