Christmas basket deliveries to vets
Members of American Legion Auxiliary Unit 38 gather to distribute the baskets of appreciation, including (l-r) Angelica C. Bustamante, Emma Thurston, Unit 38 President Sophie Rodriquez, Louise Thurman, and Vickie Guillen.
The Floresville American Legion Auxiliary Unit 38’s yearly Christmas basket delivery to the veterans and widows who, due to ailments or immobility, cannot move about the city, was really appreciated by all of the recipients of the baskets.
The baskets, made by the ladies of the Auxiliary Unit 38, were delivered personally to all the veterans and widows. The baskets were decorated and filled with fruit, home-baked cakes, cookies, and toiletries. The baskets were delivered a week before Christmas, bringing joy, comfort, and season’s cheer. The effort is to show our appreciation and to thank them for their service to our country.
However small the gift, the heartfelt effort is to let them know that they have not toiled for our freedoms in vain. We appreciate the opportunity and the freedom to be able to provide this small token of appreciation for our veterans.
