American Legion Auxiliary, Unit #39, Madison is once again collecting school supplies for children and staff in its local school districts (Madison MSAD #59 and Carrabec RSU #74). With the lingering uncertainties ahead, the need is still great. Here are some suggestions for items in need: rulers, erases, pencils, colored pencils, ink pens (black, blue and red), crayons, post-its, glue sticks, glue, scissors, backpacks, pencil pouches or boxes, 1″ binders, 1 subject notebooks, sheet protectors, tab dividers, and ruled filler paper.
Items may be dropped off in the collection box at the Madison American Legion Hall, on 20 S. Maple Street, on Mondays, Wednesdays through Saturdays after 3 p.m., and on Sundays between noon to 4 p.m. Those who would like to send a monetary donation can make checks payable to Madison American Legion Auxiliary, P.O. Box 325, Madison, ME 04950, with School Supplies in the memo.
You can drop off items in the collection box that will be available at the American Legion Auxiliary’s booth during Madison/Anson Days on August 21, in the grassy space next to Skowhegan Savings Bank, at 188 Main Street, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. They will be selling RADA Cutlery items, American Pride Bracelets and raffle tickets on a Red, White & Blue “Summer Fun” Tote filled with many items and gift certificates.
Founded in 1919, the American Legion Auxiliary (ALA) members dedicated themselves for over a century to meeting the needs of our nation’s veterans, military, and their families both here and abroad. They volunteer millions of hours yearly, with a value of nearly $2 billion. As part of the world’s largest patriotic service organization, auxiliary volunteers across the country also step up to honor veterans and military through annual scholarships and with ALA Girls Stage programs, teaching high school juniors to be leaders grounded in patriotism and Americanism. To learn more about the auxiliary’s mission or to volunteer, donate or join, visit www.ALAforveterans.org or http://www.mainelegionpost39.org. Or contact Robin Turek, President at 696-8289 – firstname.lastname@example.org.
