Make the Holidays Brighter for our Veterans – Become A Secret Soldier Santa
For several years we have reached out to you for your support of the Secret Soldier Santa program at the Northport VA Medical Center (NVAMC) and your overwhelmingly generous response enabled its success. We would like to call upon you once again.
This year we are going to combine our clothing Gift Bag program with our gift card program. Similar to last year, we will use your donations to purchase gift cards that will be distributed to our Veterans for use in purchasing holiday gifts for their children. This empowerment to purchase the gift items their children would love to receive is one of the greatest gifts we can give a Veteran. We are working to raise money to purchase these gift cards from major stores and your donations will help make this happen. The program is administered by Social Services at the NVAMC.
In addition, we received approval to deliver clothing Gift Bags for the holidays for our Veterans in the residences at the NVAMC. This was a pre-pandemic program that was discontinued for the past few years, and we are happy to see it return. As a result, when you contribute to the Secret Soldier Santa program, you will be donating to both the children of Veterans and Veterans in residence at the NVAMC.
On Saturday, November 18th, from 9:30 am until 4:30 pm, our American Legion Auxiliary members will be in the back outdoor section of Raindew in Manhasset accepting monetary donations for Secret Soldier Santa. We are very grateful to Raindew for their continued support of our Veterans and the American Legion Auxiliary’s ongoing programs. This is a very generous and patriotic gesture on their part.
Post 304 of the Manhasset American Legion, 27 Bayview Avenue, will also be open on Saturday, November 18th, from 9:30 am until 4:30 pm, to accept donations for this worthy cause.
Donations may be made in cash, by check, or by credit card. A QR code will be available for your use. Checks should be made payable to American Legion Auxiliary and may be dropped off on November 18th or mailed to American Legion Auxiliary, 27 Bayview Avenue, Manhasset, NY 11030. American Legion Auxiliary Manhasset Unit 304 is a 501(c)(19) tax exempt organization. All donations are tax deductible as permitted by law.
Please join us in spreading cheer to those who have sacrificed so much in the service of our great nation and in the preservation of our freedoms. Thank you for all you have done and continue to do for our Veterans. May you each be blessed in abundance at this beautiful holiday season.
