Donations Allow for New Guidi Chairs
Anna Veterans Home - Anna

Thanks to the generosity of several donors, veterans living at the Illinois Veterans Home in Anna will be provided new “Guidi” chairs.
On June 27, the District 15 VFW and its Auxiliary presented donations totaling $5,100 to Angela Simmons, Administrator of the Illinois Veterans Home at Anna to be used to replace the old/unusable “Guidi” chairs.
The Guidi chairs are used for positioning and mobility of otherwise bedridden resi¬dents allowing them to be part of their community in the common areas instead of being confined to their rooms. Additionally, Beggs-Gurley VFW Post #5222 presented Angela with a generous donation for the Home’s Activity Fund.
The VFW Foundation approved three individual $1,000 Community Service Grant requests from Harry H. Kinman VFW Post #2671 in Benton; Creal Springs Memorial VFW Post #9763 in Creal Springs; and the VFW Auxiliary to Baker-Ladd VFW Post #1567 in Herrin. A $1,000 donation from the Daughters of Isabella Monsignor de Gas¬peri Circle No. 959 in Herrin, as well as donations from the Illinois 15th District VFW, the 15th District VFW Auxiliary along with VFW Posts in Benton, Mounds and Vienna and the Vienna VFW Auxiliary rounded out the funds.
