LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Legion 139 thanks community for donations
Letter to the editor:
The Sullivan American Legion Post 139 held a drive on Oct. 6 at the Sullivan Walmart for comfort items for the Roudebush VA Hospital in Indianapolis and the Indiana Veterans Home in Lafayette.
We thank the residents of the Sullivan area for their support and generosity. The Legion collected close to $1,000 worth of items. Not all in money but mostly by people picking up items in Walmart and dropping them in our collection barrels as they left the store. I hope everyone that participated realized that they personally filled the need of one or more veterans by such a simple act.
We would also like to thank the Sullivan Moose Lodge for donating not only comfort items but also several electric razors needed by the Indiana Veterans Home. We would also like to express our appreciation to Walmart for allowing us to use their store.
