Thanks for the generous support

Dear Editor:

On behalf of the boys, parents and leaders of Basalt Cub Scout Pack 242, I would like to thank the Basalt and El Jebel communities, City Market, El Jebowl, and J’s Place in El Jebowl for their generous support of Pack 242’s annual food drive and bowl-a-thon last weekend.

With the current economic downturn, requests for assistance are up substantially. Our midvalley communities rose to the occasion for this year’s food drive, providing record donations. It’s wonderful to see such a caring response! All food and funds have been forwarded to Lift Up and the Basalt Cares group to provide holiday food baskets for needy families in our communities.

Mark Murphy

cubmaster, Pack 242
