The Auxiliary ladies have been busy
Barbara Trent and Cindy VanPay, members of the Captain Edgar Dale American Legion Auxiliary Unit#81 of El Dorado, met on Dec. 20, 2018, at Walmart to purchase gifts and food baskets for four families that the unit sponsored and referred from The Salvation Army. Trent and VanPay, along with Carole Smith met the next day at the Legion post to wrap the gifts for the families.
On Sunday, Dec. 23, Virginia Ball, Karen Hasting, Barbara Trent, Carole Smith, and Cindy VanPay acted as Secret Santas and delivered the gifts and food baskets to the families, who were grateful for the kindness.
This is the first year that the Auxiliary has sponsored families for Christmas.
Cindy VanPay, Unit Public Relations Officer said, “It was a very heartwarming experience to know that our unit will have made a Merry Christmas for the families.”
