Legion Auxiliary collecting items for homeless veterans

The American Legion Auxiliary Unit #148 Langhorne will be walking just ahead of the parade on Memorial Day, Monday, May 30th, collecting personal care items, snacks and distributing Poppies for donations. The poppy was adopted by the American Legion Auxiliary as their official memorial flower in 1921 to symbolize the sacrifice that our brave men and women have made for our freedom.

One-hundred percent of the poppy monies donated will go directly into programs for our hospitalized and disabled veterans. They will be using much of the donations locally in the Delaware Valley VA center and for disabled veterans and their families that are in need in our own community.
