Fourth- and fifth-grade Edina Cub Scouts collected more than 225 coats, gloves, mittens and other winter garments for a local domestic violence center.

The Weblos of Edina Cub Scout Pack 123 also donated $347 in cash to the Minneapolis-based Harriet Tubman Center.

"This was the largest single donation we have received in our 40-year history,” said Danika Trosen, a Tubman communications staffer.

Tubman provides safe shelter, legal services, counseling, elder care resources, youth programming and community education throughout the Twin Cities.
