Ace Hardware in Burley and Rupert is asking for the public support of our Veterans this Memorial Weekend. Beginning Friday, May 26th, and continuing through Monday, May 29th, customers will have the opportunity to round up to the next dollar for the American Legion Auxiliary Poppy Program for purchases made at either store. Donation cans will also be available at the registers for those wishing to make a donation in loose change. Wear a poppy to honor those who have worn our nation's uniform!
"The red poppy is a nationally recognized symbol of sacrifice worm by Americans since World War I to honor those who served and died for our country in all wars. It reminds Americans of the sacrifices made by our Veterans while protecting our freedoms."
All donations received will be used by The American Legion Family for their programs that support Veterans, the military community, and their families.
