American Legion Supports CDH Efforts to Serve Foster Children

SPRINGFIELD — Three members of the American Legion recently visited the Center for Human Development (CDH) to present a donation of $500 which will go toward purchasing travel bags and necessities for CHD foster children.

“Too often a child arrives on our doorsteps with what little belongings they have packed into a black trash bag,” said Kimberley Lee, vice president of Development at CHD. “The American Legion and CHD believe that providing these children with their own personalized travel bag is a wonderful opportunity to show them how much they are cared for and about.”

The American Legion recognizes the need restore a child’s self-worth and strives to support nonprofit organizations like CHD that provide services for children and youth, and to provide communities with well-rounded programs that meet the physical, educational, emotional, and spiritual needs of young people.
