Legion provides help


It is cold, lonely and isolating when you don't have enough money to pay your winter bills, which can be at least 30 percent higher due to the cost associated with utilities and food, essential components to quality living. That is terrible news to the retired veteran who lives on a fixed income of retirement, which doesn't provide for any extra spending during the long winter months in Seward.

For the fifth year in a row, the American Legion joined forces with the Sons of American Legion and the American Legion Auxiliary to help feed our retired veterans, five days a week at the senior center, where we provide a free will donation senior nutrition program. Free will means donate what you can, up to $5 per meal, so we can serve anyone over the age of 60, with or without a monetary contribution.

The American Legion groups collectively provided the necessary funds to pay for every veteran, their spouse or widows lunch throughout the winter months, protecting the dignity of those we serve, by allowing them to eat for free. So if you are a senior citizen veteran, 60 and older, it is never too late to start attending the daily lunch program. We would love to meet you.

Thank you to the American Legion for protecting the dignity of our community of senior veterans and their spouses through your generous financial contribution to the senior nutrition program this winter. You help us help others!

- Dana Paperman and the Seward Senior Center board of directors
