[December 10, 2016]  LINCOLN - This is the 72nd year that citizens of Logan County have the opportunity to thank veterans who have served our country and are now residents of Logan County nursing homes.

The American Legion Gift for Yanks Who Gave, ensures that no Logan County veteran, residing in a Logan County nursing home, is forgotten during the Christmas season.

Each year our citizens respond generously to this program as a way of thanking these men and women who have served in the armed forces of our great nation. Let us once again respond to this program and show these men and women that we do care.

Contributions to this worthy cause can be mailed to:

Gifts for Yanks Who Gave
c/o Town and Country Bank
P.O. Box 159
Lincoln, IL 62656

Donations are appreciated and will be used for Christmas gifts for hospitalized veterans in all Logan county nursing homes. Every possible effort is made to see that each veteran receives a gift but it is possible that a nursing home is not aware the person is a veteran. If your loved one, in a nursing home, did not receive a gift please contact Lincoln Legion Post at 732-3743 and one will be delivered.
