Serving Hospitalized Veterans Across Illinois
Enclosed is a sample of the Tee-Shirts and lapel pins that are available on line at giftstotheyanks.org.
The Tee-Shirts cost $15.00 and lapel pins $5.00 each. Patches will be available soon.
It is our hope that your group will have a fund raiser to help support the Gifts To The Yanks Who Gave program.
For those that do not know about the Gifts To The Yanks, it started back in 1944, it is an American Legion program. Money is raised every year to provide Christmas gifts for our veterans in the VA Hospitals, IL VA Nursing Homes, Local Nursing Homes and Homebound.
It takes close to $170,000.00 each year to give good quality sweat suits, blankets, gift bags, sweaters, etc. to over 8000 disabled veterans.
With donations being down the past couple of years we are reaching out to you for your support. You could have a ride, order shirts and sell them or charges a fee to ride and give them a shirt, patch, lapel pin. I am sure you all have done similar fund raisers for other programs and can think of a great way to raise funds to support our disabled veterans.
100% of ALL donations go to the program, no administration fees are taken.
Thanks for caring and supporting our disabled veterans, please help us bring smiles to the faces of our veterans that may only be receiving this gift for Christmas.
