New service group for kids helps U.S. veterans



The Junior Auxiliary meets the first Tuesday of every month, 6 p.m., at the American Legion Post 255 at 3855 Old Black Creek Road.

Meanwhile, the Ladies Auxiliary is also staying busy. On the same day they served lunch at Pine Hill, auxiliary members also took care packages to Three Hots and a Cot at Woodlawn, which houses homeless veterans.

In addition, the members served lunch to the community following the Veterans Day ceremony in Fultondale.

They also plan to serve Thanksgiving dinner to post members and their families, and will host a birthday party for all 28 of the post’s World War II veterans and their families.

In order to reach farther out of their community, the Ladies Auxiliary is collecting winter clothing and clothing of all sizes to donate. Members are also collecting items to mail to deployed soldiers, as well as cash donations to help pay shipping.

A list of needed items is available at the post.

To donate hygiene items for the VA Hospital care packages or for information about the Juniors Auxiliary, call Alexander at (205) 281-5562.

To donate to soldiers care packages or for more information about the Ladies Auxiliary, call the post at 490-6501.
