Local Veterans of Foreign Wars Hall 1381 began donating to the Crescent City Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in June this year.

"When we see a need we try to fill it," said VFW member Joe Marine, of the donations made to the convalescent hospital.

The local VFW hall donated 25 20-inch color televisions to the convalescent home in June.

According to Marine, local VFW 1381 members meet on the first Friday of each month to discuss VFW issues and bring up choices for possible donations.

During the July meeting, the group approved the donation of five plastic tables and a popcorn machine to the convalescent home.

According to Marine the items are scheduled to be delivered on July 24. He said, "the popcorn-machine may take longer to be delivered, because it needs to be ordered from a catalog."
