POPLAR BLUFF, MO (KFVS) -

Veterans at the Community Living Center (CLC) at the John J. Pershing VA Medical Center (nursing home floor) were recently visited by representatives of the American Legion Auxiliary Department of Missouri. 

The Auxiliary hosted its annual Christmas Gift Shop for the Veterans. 

Residents of the CLC “shopped” for no-cost Christmas gifts for themselves and family members, courtesy of the American Legion Auxiliary.

Voluntary Services Officer, Donna Reynolds, said, “The residents love having the opportunity to choose gifts for their families- this has become a very popular tradition.”
