Mid Florida Lakes American Legion Auxiliary Unit 330 in Leesburg, Florida is a small but mighty group of women dedicated to helping our veterans and active military in Lake County. Throughout the year, we hold fund raisers and the money raised goes to this cause. Recently we held a Dessert Card Party in our community clubhouse. Over 100 attended and through their generosity we raised almost $2000.00, to further these efforts.
Throughout the year we also participate in local observances such as Memorial and Veteran’s Day. This week we will be attending a special observance at the Paisley Charter School. They will be having a ” Take A Veteran To School” Day. Along with the Legion we visit schools in the area, teaching the students about our flag. Our future efforts include, supporting the homeless and less fortunate in our area. Throughout the year we collect donations and distribute the many items collected. These ladies are an asset to Lake County and should be recognized for all their hard work.
