American Legion Auxiliary, San Anselmo Unit 179

We need your help!  The only way we can reach our goals is with the support of  
people who value patriotism, responsible citizenship, volunteerism and advocacy for
military personnel, veterans, their families and their communities.  What can you do?

Tell Them You Care - Write a note, a card, or a short letter with words of
encouragement and appreciation.  These letters are the number one morale
boosters for our troops, and will be included in our care packages.

Donate Items - Donate needed food and/or toiletry items for our care
packages.  Click here for a list of the items currently needed.  We can arrange to
pick up your donation.

Do You Sew, Knit or Crochet? - Warm winter items such as scarves, hats
and helmet liners are very appreciated by the troops.  If you'd like to help, click

generous support of our members and the community that we are able to
continue our programs.  Please consider underwriting a portion of our expenses
through a financial contribution.  All donations are tax deductible to the extent
