Volunteers said helping groups like the Salt Lake International Refugee Center was more fun than the usual Saturday morning cartoons.

Madison Richmond explained, "We're making blankets for young children that are cold and less fortunate."

Scouts also made heat therapy rice bags for the Huntsman Cancer Institute and collected reading glasses. A local scout will deliver those glasses later to a third-world country.
