Letter: For Christmas this year, support veterans

The annual Christmas Gift Shop, sponsored by the American Legion Auxiliary Unit 121 River Falls is being held at Freeman's Drug Store from Nov. 2-27 and is again seeking donations of new items for hospitalized veterans at the Minneapolis VA Hospital to give as gifts to their loved ones. There is no cost to the veterans.

Gifts are wrapped and boxed for delivery in time for Christmas by Auxiliary members and can include: Sweatshirts for men, women and children, flannel shirts, three-piece bath towel sets, knit hat/scarf/mitten sets, socks, games, stuffed animals, toy cars and trucks, dolls, pillowcases and more.

More ideas are posted at the drugstore. Monetary donations will also be accepted.

Thank you for helping a hospitalized veteran and his family to have a happy Christmas.
