Post 630 veterans collecting food for the needy in the community.


Veterans declare, “No one should go hungry at Christmas time"

Blue Ash, OH

Members of American Legion Northeast Post 630, Blue Ash, Ohio, organized and promoted a canned food drive, declaring "No one should go hungry at Christmas time." On Dec. 19, 2020, a cold and windy Saturday, donors drove up to the collection point and Post 630 veterans removed the canned goods and food boxes from their cars. More than a pickup truckload of food was collected and given to the St. Vincent de Paul Society at Saviour Church to distribute to local families in need. In addition to the food, $175 was also donated. A Saint Vincent de Paul volunteer told Post 630 members, “This will enable St. Vincent’s to supply food for those in need in our community!"

In addition, Post 630 collected old and tattered American flags donors wanted to have properly disposed of. More than a barrelful of flags was taken in.
