VFW, American Legion thank donors
This has been one of the most difficult years in history – the pandemic, high rates of unemployment and the closing of many retail outlets and restaurants. Through all of this, the residents of Botetourt County came forward and made generous donations when both Posts had fund-raising events either at Walmart or at the Daleville Bojangles. These donations have been used to help veterans in Botetourt County and the surrounding greater Roanoke area.
Funds were donated to assorted organizations such as “Vittles for Vets,” New Freedom Farm, Feeding Southwest Virginia and a recent donation to the Craig County Social Services Department to feed and clothe young people in the New Castle area.
Both VFW Post 1841 and American Legion Post 240 sincerely give thanks to all for the generous donations. Without these people, neither post would be able to assist our veterans in this area.”
