The Crosslake-Fifty Lakes American Legion Post 500 donated $1,000 to the Homeless and Wounded Warriors of MN to provide Christmas presents to children of veteran families in need. The families that will be "adopted" are nominated by outside individuals and organizations with knowledge of families that wouldn't otherwise be able to provide Christmas presents for the children.

Homeless and Wounded Warriors of MN is taking donations from individuals and organizations to "adopt" as many families in need as possible. Donations can be in the form of cash or gifts that individuals purchase.

For more information on how to contribute, call Steve Eisenreich at 320-267-0376.
