Red Bud VFW donates $1,000 to Santa’s Village

PRESENTED DONATION–The Red Bud VFW recently presented a donation to the Santa’s Village committee to help put a trailer under Santa’s house. Pictured at the presentation are: VFW Senior Vice-Commander Clyde Rowold, Andrea Jenkins, Twyla Schulte, VFW Commander Clarence Nail and VFW Quartermaster Larry Ehlers.

Last week, the Red Bud VFW Post presented a $1,000 donation to the Santa’s Village committee to help put a trailer underneath Santa’s house in the village.

Santa’s Village committee members Andrea Jenkins and Twyla Schulte noted that they appreciate the donation very much, as putting a trailer underneath the structure was a big necessity in order to maintain and transport it for future use.

The three other big items on the “elves’ wish list” at Santa’s Village are: putting a roof in Santa’s house, a tent with heaters, and insulating all of the village huts. 

The Santa’s Village committee is currently looking for sponsors for those items. If anyone is able to help with those needs, they can contact any of the Santa’s Village committee members: Andrea Jenkins, Twyla Schulte, Quinn Johnson, Diane Guebert, Amanda Zimmerman, Cintia Mollet and Jen Tepe; or email RBSantaVillage@gmail.com.
