A local veterans organization is stepping up to help those in need for the upcoming holidays. The American Legion Ernest Haucke Post 236 in Algoma is holding a food drive for the Kewaunee County Food Pantry next month. American Legion Commander Tracy Steiner says the event has been successful in the past, supporting others who are hurting financially. She says it is important for the organization to give back to the community.
The food drive will take place at the Legion Hall in Algoma from noon until 4 pm, both Saturday, November 12, and Sunday, November 13. All non-perishable foods and household goods will be accepted over the weekend. Steiner adds that her American Legion Post will deliver all donated items to the Kewaunee County Food Pantry before the holidays.
