Donations for Elderly Veterans

Date: November 9, 2017 - December 22, 2017
Event Description Elderly Veterans at Manteno Need Your Donations!
American Legion Post 1977 is collecting personal items for the Illinois Veterans Home-Manteno. Many of these elderly Veterans have no living relatives so we are their only family. They proudly served in the United States Armed Forces. Now, they need our help.

Please donate new, unopened items and food products. Needed most are:
  • Sweat pants (M-XXL)
  • Sweat shirts (M-XXL)
  • Railroad and Diabetic socks, which our wheel chair bound Veterans wear through quickly. PLEASE DO NOT LET THEM FACE WINTER WITHOUT SOCKS!
All donations can be placed in the footlocker conveniently located at the North entrance of the Canteen.  The American Legion is located at 14414 Ford Dr. New Lenox, IL
