See attached sheet for discription of the project.
Any donations from Squadrons or individually will be greatly appreciated and will be sent a Certificate of Appreciation signed by the Commander and myself. This projects is what we do as an American Legion Family, helping Veterans that are in need.
Please make all donations payable to: Detachment of N.J.

Cliffside Park, NJ 07010
or you can come to a Detachment meeting and present it to the Commander personally. Commander Hasselhan and myself will be traveling throughout the state and you can present it to us anytime.

Thank you in advance for your donation and we are looking forward to seeing all of you this year.
