Oregon VFW Post 8739 will once again make up and deliver Christmas food baskets to families and individuals who are in need in the Oregon area.
Any family or individual who is in need may call the VFW Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. at 815-732-6851 to be placed on the list.
Each individual or family must call for themselves with their complete name, address, and phone number for a basket to be delivered.
An adult must be at home on the morning of Saturday, Dec. 16 to receive the basket.
Even if you received a basket in previous years, you must call again this year to get on the list.
Names are currently being accepted.
The deadline for calling in is Thursday, Nov. 30.
Last year, the post provided more than 120 food baskets to area residents.
Donations from residents and businesses are always accepted, needed, and greatly appreciated to continue the program.
