Food Pantry Donations In Memory Of Jose M. Tavares
The American Legion Post 302 is as a patriotic veterans organization devoted to mutual helpfulness throughout the Rehoboth community. The American Legion itself is the nation’s largest wartime Veterans service organization and is committed to mentoring youths, sponsorship of wholesome programs and supporting our communities like the Rehoboth Food Pantry. For several years the American Legion Post 302 and the Sons of the American Legion have generously given quarterly contributions to the Rehoboth Food Pantry but this is a special occasion as both organizations are donating $1,000.00 in Memory of Jose M.
