The Heckman-Isganitis-Messerschmidt Quakake American Legion Post 973 stepped-up to help less fortunate kids in our area enjoy a better Christmas. Last year the post came together in just two days to purchase and wrap gifts for over 40 local children for the Salvation Army's Angel Tree. This year, the post came together again in a few days to also raise $300 for the Schuylkill Carbon Marine Corps League's annual Toys For Tots campaign. The post is a yearly contributor of both the local Salvation Army Angel Tree and Toys For Tots campaigns. Pictured standing from left are Sr. Vice Commander Paul Ringer, member Kenny Brobst, and Schuylkill Carbon Marine Corps League member Paul Corinchock. Pictured kneeling are finance officer Dan Scheeler, left, and Commander Carmen Forke.
