The Auxiliary asks that you encourage the American Legion Family to please donate needed supplies for the Troop Support Boxes. Lists of needed supplies have been widely distributed and a supply donation box prominently placed in the Legion hall. Once a year the Auxiliary endeavors to send our community service members a Christmas package from home to show our appreciation. This year the Auxiliary will bake 50 dozen homemade cookies to go along with the supplies. The supply items are not expensive and can be easily purchased at a local store and are truly appreciated by our service members.
