A J Luna, Director Veteran’s Services Visits Post 162
On Friday, December 18, 2015 the Director of Veteran Services from Hackensack, NJ came to our Post 162 to pickup 76 backpacks stuffed with socks, hats, gloves, foot/hand warmers, and toiletries as well as winter clothing ( jackets, hoodies, sweatshirts, thermals, scarves and blankets ). Included with all these items was $ 2600.00 in food gift certificates for Burger Kings, Mc Donald’s, Dunkin Donuts, Subway, Panera, Shop Rite, etc.
All of the above came from The American Legion Hillsdale Woodcliff Lake Old Tappan, VFW Westwood, schools, churches, local businesses, and the community.
The motto of the Veterans Services is “They ( the homeless ) served our country…..now let us help them”. We hope we lived up to it?
