ALP 243 begins holiday food collections

The Mount Vernon American Legion and Auxiliary to Post 243 began their collection of nonperishable food items for the 2017 Christmas For All program Wednesday, November 1.

  The Post is combining their Bingo patrons’ desire for a bargain with the collection program - Bingo for Food. They are offering a double pay game pack for a quarter when patrons provide the designated food items in specified sizes. For details on how to help with this project, see the November 2 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
