American Legion Auxiliary Purse Collection

On January 15th, American Legion Auxiliary #79 members met and packed 175 donated purses with donated items including personal hygiene items, gloves, hats, scarves, socks and blankets. The purpose of this project is to provide a purse filled with basic necessities to homeless female Veterans. These purses were then taken by Mary Krause to District Convention this past weekend to be distributed. Mary Krause reported the rough total number of filled purses collected throughout the district at 1,250.
