For their ‘Pillowcase Project,’ the South Dakota Department of the American Legion Auxiliary was commended by their national organization. The ‘Pillowcase Project’ was named the Best Children and Youth Project in the American Legion Northwestern Division.
According to South Dakota Legion Auxiliary First Vice President Mary Jo Stier, Auxiliary Units from all over South Dakota collected items to be placed in pillowcases for children in the care of the South Dakota Department of Social Services.
“I knew in August that we had received the award,” said Mary Jo. “I was privileged to accept it during our midwinter conference last week in Chamberlain.”
Remember Everyone Deployed (RED) is another Auxiliary program.
“Every Friday is designated as ‘wear red Friday,’” said Mary Jo. The goal is to remember everyone still on active duty deployed overseas.
