The Post has responded to the Hurrican Harvey and subsequent floods by collecting donations and hualing them to Houston and Crosby, TX where the posts are functioning as distribution centers and a shelter.
Post 159 and Boy Scout Troop 159 had a collection drive and donations were delivered in two trips to our fellow Legionnaires in Lumberton, TX last week. They were most grateful for the bottled water, diapers, dog food, toiletries, and non perishable food supplies. They are sharing these donations with neighbors in Lumberton and also with those stranded in Beaumont.
Over 250 members of the Arkansas National Guard arrived at Post 159 on Wednesday, Sept 6 to ready for deployment to coastal cities affected by the floods. Post 159 was proud to host these troops and make them feel welcome and appreciated.
