Veterans Making A Difference and the Oley American Legion distributed food and toiletries to 56 veterans on Saturday.

The groups set up at the Paul R. Gordon Veteran Social Center at the Hope Rescue Mission in Reading and gave four bags of items to each veteran.

Bags included food, toilet paper and laundry soap.

Anne Levan, volunteer with Veterans Making A Difference, made up holiday treat bags for the veterans, which included lots of candy.

The Legion post has been helping to make bagged lunches every second Saturday and in January it will be eight years, organizers said.
