Letter: Care packages to troops continues

on November 25, 2009
The American Legion Womenâ€™s Auxiliary of Sugar Grove Post #1271 has been sending boxes to the troops overseas for many years now.
Recently, on Nov. 10, we packed up yet another mailing for them; about 25 boxes were prepared by the Auxiliary volunteers and will be mailed this week.
We try to send three or four mailings per year, particularly around the Christmas holiday time. Our money for these mailings comes mostly from an event we run in tandem to the Sugar Grove Corn Boil, our annual car show. We also accept personal donations of both material goods and money; we have drop bins in the American Legion Post at 65 First St., Sugar Grove.
We take pride in the work that we are doing and have received many thank-yous from across the seas.
