Idaho County Veterans Association

GRANGEVILLE — On Nov. 15, Pearl Bentley, Lewiston Veterans Home Deputy, received a check for $500 from Jinny Cash from the Idaho County Veterans Association. The $500 was from the donations received at the Idaho County Veterans and Community Outreach Center during Veterans Day week. A big thank you to all who donated. Also given were some clothing items that will be put on the gift table held the first week in December. The gift table is an opportunity for residents at the Lewiston Veterans Home to select gifts for their family members. This event brings big smiles to the veterans who can give (at no cost) to those they love.

Jinny Cash, who is the Department of Idaho Vice Commander for the American Legion representing North Idaho, has been working to obtain funding and donations to make the gift table a success. The gift table is an annual project at the Lewiston Veterans Home sponsored by the American Legion Auxiliary. The deputies coordinating the gift table this year are members of the Grangeville Auxiliary Unit 37, Pearl and Katrina Bentley.
