Legionnaires! Please join us in supporting fellow Veterans in need! This year our Post will be participating in the Christmas Gift Program with the VA Outpatient Clinic here in Austin.
They have asked for gender neutral items to be handed to the veterans at a refreshment table at the clinic the week prior to Christmas. Last year they handed out over 700 gifts and it’s a great chance to let other Veterans know we care – and about our Post!
You can donate a gift either wrapped or unwrapped. My request is that either way you include a card or note and sign it with your name and “American Legion Post 76”-its a small gesture to let Vets know the Legion is looking out for our brothers and sisters. If you wrap your own gifts, please indicate for the Voluntary Service Staff if the gift if for a male or female. Here is a listing of some of the items that can be used for gifts:
Mittens/gloves, Scarves, Beanies
Socks (new unopened packages – normally athletic socks)
Please plan to bring your gift to the December Post social meeting. Thank you for continuing to serve!
