Osky American Legion Veterans food drive

Oskaloosa’s American Legion post is collecting food for a food drive.  Darin Alderson, house committee chairman for Harry L. Anderson American Legion Post 34, has details.

“The food drive will be November 7.  We’re taking donations now until November 7.  There are five drop locations: First Christian Reformed Church, Southern Iowa Fairgrounds, Edmundson Golf Course, Wood Iron Grille and at the Post on High Avenue.

“We are going to do a ruck to retrieve all the food.  A ruck is a military style movement (where the food will be carried in backpacks).  Some people in the ruck are teams and some are individuals. And if you don’t want to walk, you can always use a golf cart or ride a bike, whatever you feel comfortable doing.”

If you’d like to participate in the ruck, there’s more information on the Harry L. Anderson American Legion Post 34 Facebook page.
