Members of the Plano American Legion Auxiliary worked hard over the holidays to create baskets for shut-in veterans and Auxiliary members of the post and unit. Baskets contained fruit, candy, snacks, holiday cards and other goods.
Many members of the Auxiliary and members of the community contributed to the baskets.
Helping in packaging were Linda Hulne, Stephanie Kaegenbein, Adrianne Tullock, Sandy Lawrence, Cherie Mauer, Sarah Wiley, Yvonne Needham-Gibson, Rennetta Mickelson, Lori Minick and junior member Elizabeth Hansel.
The Auxiliary’s next project is “Valentines for Veterans,” to benefit the LaSalle Veterans Home and its more than 100 residents.
The American Legion Auxiliary Organization is a nonprofit group that supports active-duty service members and veterans, including their families and communities.
