(Beaver Dam) A food drive is underway again this year for veterans in the Dodge County area. The annual Veterans of Foreign Wars Post #1163 “Food Drive For Veterans” campaign provides a basket of items to the families of servicemen and women who could use a little extra help at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Veteran organizer Paul Lauth says there are specific food items they are looking for including breakfast cereals, pancake mix and syrup, instant potatoes and crackers. Lauth says they are also look for cash donations. Donation barrels can be found at Rechek’s Food Pride in Beaver Dam and Piggly Wiggly stores in Beaver Dam, Juneau, Mayville and Waupun. Tax-deductible donations can be directed to the Dodge County VFW Chapter. Contact information is on the food barrels; or call Paul Lauth at 763-3577.
