The Legion Riders of the Williamson American Legion Post 394 have once again extended their support to local veterans this holiday season by distributing Christmas food boxes.
On December 16th, twenty-six veteran households in Wayne County were the beneficiaries of this annual initiative. Volunteers from various organizations, including the Boy Scouts and Ontario Rod and Gun Club, alongside Breen’s Shop ‘n Save staff, prepared fifty-two food boxes.
In addition to the food, Christmas stockings filled with gifts were also delivered. A follow-up delivery is scheduled for December 23rd, which will include toys for children in these veteran households, donated by the Blue Star Mothers.
The Legion Riders’ commitment to supporting veterans extends beyond the holiday season, as they offer food boxes five times a year, coinciding with major holidays like Easter, Independence Day, Labor Day, and Thanksgiving.
They also provide crucial short-term emergency assistance to veterans facing immediate needs, filling gaps not covered by other sources. The assistance is income-based, ensuring it reaches those most in need. For more information on eligibility, donations, or further support, individuals are encouraged to contact the American Legion Riders at their Williamson post office box.
