American Legion Riders Post 145 in Leesville will host the Annual Dennis Dow Adopt-a-Senior Ride to support the Food Bank of Central Louisiana’s Adopt-a-Senior program in Vernon Parish on September 15. The ride will begin and end at the American Legion Riders Post 145, and the ride starts at 10 a.m. Registration begins at 9 a.m. The cost per rider is $20, and $10 per passenger.
This is the eighth year for this fundraising event which has raised $106,700 for the Food Bank of Central Louisiana’s Adopt-a-Senior Program.
The Food Bank’s Adopt-A-Senior Program was designed to help supplement impoverished seniors nutritional needs so that they are not faced with the difficult decision of choosing between medicine, rent and food. Seniors in the program receive 50 pounds of food per month for a year. A $150 donation to the program will help provide food for a senior in our community. For more information, please contact the American Legion Post 145 at 337-238-2606.
