Applications available for holiday food baskets


For the 27th consecutive year, the Vevay American Legion will be giving food baskets to needy families at Christmas.

This is a joint venture between the American Legion, American Electric Power Company and all six Switzerland County Fire Departments. Without each of these entities having input, this would not become a reality.

Applications for food baskets may be filled out at the Vevay American Legion Post at 213 Ferry Street. The applications must be filled out by Thursday, November 30th. There will be no exceptions to this deadline.

The food baskets will be given based on need. Families that have been chosen to receive a food basket will receive a postcard in the mail, giving the day and location that the food basket can be picked up.

When filling out the application, you will need to indicate which county fire department you live the closest to, and that is where you will pick up your basket.
