All donations made go towards buying 2019 at these Batavia Senior care facilities: Heritage Woods, The Holmstad and The Batavia Rehab Center. The Batavia American Legion Post 504 would like to thank all the patrons who gave to the Gift for Yanks program this year. Without your donations we would not be able to visit the VETS before Christmas and hand out the gifts you helped purchase this year.
