Christmas food basket deadline


For the 23rd 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; Indiana-Kentucky Utilities; Belterra Casino Resort and Spa; and area fire departments.

Applications for the food baskets may now be picked up at the Vevay American Legion Post at 213 Ferry Street.

The applications must be returned to the American Legion by tomorrow (Friday, November 30th). There are no exceptions to this deadline.

The food baskets will be given based on need. If your family is chosen to receive a food basket, you will receive a postcard in the mail, telling you what day and where to pick up the basket.

You will need to indicate on the application which fire department you live closest to, because that’s where you will pick your basket up.
