The Woodbury American Legion Post 501 will be conducting their Wall of Thanks charity drive at the Valley Creek Mall starting November 26 and running through December 18. The hours for Saturdays are from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 1p.m.
The Wall of Thanks is an annual event to raise money for local charities and to honor veterans or members currently serving in the military. The booth will be located inside the Valley Creek Mall across from Keys Cafe. Visitors will be able to donate money that will benefit the local veteran focused charities. In 2021 we supported the Armed Forces Service Center, Christian Cupboard Emergency Foodshelf, Hastings Veterans Home and Veterans Campground on Big Marine Lake with the donations that we collected.
You will also be able to post the name of a veteran or a family member currently serving in the military, on a placard and affix it to the Wall of Thanks. Last year’s Wall of Thanks was a great success. We raised over $2,000 and posted approximately 560 Veterans and current military members’ names on our Wall of Thanks honoring their Service to our Country.
