HVAF is appreciative for the commitment of the American Legion Auxiliary to our homeless veterans.Rita Ellis, American Legion Auxiliary (ALA) 7th District President, visited HVAF in early November. She shared what she learned about HVAF with the ALA Presidents in the 7th District including Phyllis Banks, ALA Unit 479 President. Phyllis then shared the information with her daughter, Kari Shelton, who created a sock drive as a Veterans Day related educational activity for her students at Sugar Creek Elementary. Kari collected 756 socks and Phyllis delivered them to our HVAF headquarters. We were particularly moved by the effort to educate elementary students about who veterans are and what they contribute to defending and preserving our American freedoms and way of life.
