American Legion Auxiliary provides free gifts

for patients at Grand Island VA medical facility

 

OMAHA, Neb. — Veterans at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) medical facility in Grand Island, Neb., don’t need to worry about having time to buy a holiday gift for a family member. They have a gift shop at the medical facility where they can select a free gift and have it wrapped.

The American Legion Auxiliary will open its holiday gift shop for Veterans Dec. 12 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the second floor recreation room.

Veterans who are residents in the Community Living Center and various other long-term or residential treatment programs at the Grand Island VA can select a free gift from a vast selection of items that the auxiliary purchased.  

The gift shop has been hosted at the VA for decades.

The VA Nebraska-Western Iowa Health Care System’s mission is to honor America’s Veterans by providing exceptional health care that improves their health and well-being.
