Raising Awareness and Funds to Help Disabled and Hospitalized Veterans

West Lawn residents (from left) Dawn Ferrarini and Eva Swiercinski brave a wet and unseasonably cold morning to stand up for U.S. military veterans at the 7-Eleven at 55th and Kostner earlier today.

Friends of the Clearing American Legion Post 600, the two raised awareness and funds as part of the annual Poppy Day
drive to assist disabled and hospitalized veterans in communities across the nation. The two have been distributing the red crepe paper poppies for the last four years.

Want to help them help our veterans? Stop by the 7-Eleven at 55th and Kostner on Friday, May 24, from 7:00 a.m. 'til early afternoon.

The Southwest Chicago Post thanks Dawn and Eva for their work, as well as all who help out on Poppy Day. You make Chicago's Southwest Side a better place for all!
