The Walter Hecklin VFW Post 1791 Auxiliary of Chaska has its annual Veterans Giving Tree up and shining again.
The purpose of the tree is to gather new clothing and basic needs for local veterans. This year the auxiliary is focusing on personal care for the veterans at Minnesota Veterans Home-Hastings. The tree has ornaments with description of the items needed. The public is invited to take an ornament, shop and return the items to the tree.
Gifts will be delivered to veterans before Christmas.
