Kirby Stewart, Honor Guard collecting donations for pets
MANATEE -- The Kirby Stewart Post 24 American Legion and the Honor Guard is helping support the Humana Society of Manatee County.
A barrel in the Post 24 entryway can be used for dropping off items of need to our "little friends," who at times are pushed to the side during the holiday season.
Volunteers helping volunteers is the name of the game and it is a year round labor of love. Thanks in advance to anyone who would like to make a difference.
