MONTCLAIR, NJ - Boy Scout Troop 12 of Montclair has teamed up with Woodland Park Cub Scout Pack 31, and Boy Scouts Troop 238 of Woodland Park to launch "Bags of Hope," a service project that will benefit Tomorrow's Children at Hackensack University Medical Center, which serves children with cancer and blood disease. 

Organizers state that donations for children aged 10-20 to fill chemo care bags are being sought. The bags will then be delivered to them this spring. Any items that tweens and teens might be interested in, to give them some comfort while they are undergoing chemo treatments, would be appreciated, such as fleece blankets, head wraps/hats, socks, non-scented lotion, gum, mints, hand sanitizer, magazines for teens, Mad Libs, journals, playing cards, puzzle books, adult coloring books and colored pencils, etc. 

Collection boxes will be at the American Legion Post 238, 410 Mt. Pleasant Ave.Wodland Park, and the Alfred Baumann Library, 7 Brophy Lane, Woodland Park. Any questions, feel free to contact Michelle at 201-247-2623.
