Cub Scouts from Augusta Pack 603 were at Shaw’s Supermarket in Augusta the weekend of Sept. 17 and 18 collecting money to purchase school supplies for needy students.

For each box of supplies that the Scouts purchased at Staples for a needy student, the business donated a second box of school supplies.

The boxes contain such items as pencils, erasers, markers, highlighters and glue sticks.

Cub Pack 603 serves kids from Augusta, Windsor and Chelsea.

Cub leader Jeff Morton said, “It was a great way to introduce our Cubs into recognizing they have a duty to help others in their community,” according to a news release from Chuck Mahaleris, district vice chairman for the Kennebec Valley District of Scouting.
