Berkley American Legion: SANTA'S HELPERS  WANTED

The Berkley American Legion would like you to consider taking the list below and buying the items for a basket for one family.

The average cost is between $50.00 and $60.00 depending on where you shop. If this exceeds your budget, join with one or two other members.

The Legion plans to have 25 to 30 baskets, depending on membership participation. Each basket will have ham, turkey, fresh fruits, vegetables, and bread.

The Post Treasury will pay for these additional items with the hope that The SAL will be purchasing the hams and turkeys. Berkley Schools will be donating funds that will allow them to buy a $50.00 Meijer gift certificate for each basket.

Please have your baskets/boxes ready and deliver them to the Post on Sunday, 12/19/21 between 3:00 PM and 6:00 PM, or Monday, 12/20/21 from 4:00 PM to 8:00 PM.

If you can’t make either of these dates and times, please call Tom Bustance at 248-462-4229. Basket delivery will take place on December 21st and 22nd.

Please let Mr. Bustance know if you wish to deliver or if you plan to donate a basket or both via email (

Thanks for making the season joyful for needy Vets!
