October 2015
12:00 AM - 12:00 PM

The Seneca Falls American Legion Post 366 invites you to join in the Commander's Can Jam.

It has been brought to our attention that cans of soup & other canned items are difficult to keep stocked at the House of Concern's food pantry and with the colder weather approaching, we want to HELP!

Through the month of October, Kirk-Casey Post 366 will be collecting canned goods that will be donated to the House of Concern's Food Pantry.  Each canned good donated gets your name entered into the drawing for a gift certificate to a local establishment.  Each can of soup, gets 2 entries.

Let's show our community how much we care & help stock those shelves.

Please feel free to contact Julie Scott, Commander with any questions, comments, or concerns @ 315-568-8091.  The Post is located at 48 State Street, Seneca Falls.
