Backus, Hackensack collect gifts for children

The Backus American Legion Post is participating in the Hackensack Area Chamber of Commerce annual Giving Tree program, which provides gifts for children from needy families in the Backus-Hackensack area.

Tags with the ages, gender and Christmas wishes of children from those families are attached to the post’s lounge Christmas tree. Those who want to provide a gift should pick up a tag and return it with the gift to the Legion by Monday. Dec. 9.
