  Miss Oahe invites schools to participate in Veterans Holiday Relief Drive

Miss Oahe Autumn Simunek, a representative of South Dakota Operation: Military Kids, invites schools to fill Buddy Baskets, an American Legion Auxiliary project to aid homeless veterans and service members’ families in need.

Each contributing group will receive a certificate of recognition. The top contributor will receive an American flag and a tablet for classroom use, which will be presented by The American Legion Auxiliary Family and Miss Oahe.

Participants can email a photo of relief items collected with their group, along with an estimated value of the donation, a contact name, address, and phone number to Autumn.Simunek@gmail.com by Jan. 15, 2015. Participating schools and photos will be shared on social media and may be mentioned in public service announcements.

Drop-off locations are available statewide. Click here for more information. Contact Autumn Simunek with questions or for a take-home flier for students.
