Veterans help veterans who lost their homes

The American Legion posts, American Legion Auxiliary and Sons of the American Legion in Craig, Hayden and Steamboat Springs and Yampa and the Veterans of Foreign Wars Steamboat Springs Post and Steamboat Springs VFW Auxiliary are raising money to provide emergency housing assistance to veterans who have lost their homes as a result of hurricane Katrina.

This fundraising effort will run through Veterans Day, Nov. 11.

Donations may be made to the American Legion National Emergency Fund at any of the American Legion posts, First National Bank of Steamboat Springs or Moffat County National Bank. Donations should be made to the American Legion National Emergency Fund.

One hundred percent of all donations received will go to veterans who have lost their homes. All donations are tax deductible.
