HOLLIDAYSBURG — An American Legion Auxiliary junior member of Unit 516, Hollidaysburg, is doing her part in the fight against COVID-19.

Junior Council Chairman Julie Singer put out the word she needed help making masks for veterans, health care workers and community members in need.

The call was answered by her own niece, a junior member of Unit 516, 14-year-old Jada Singer.

Jada asked her parents if she could help and they got her materials and taught her how to cut the pattern for the masks.

Jada and her father Eric Singer (Sons of the American Legion and Legion Rider member of Post 516) and her stepmother Tammy Singer, auxiliary member of Unit 516, said they are proud of Jada’s efforts and concerns for veterans and community in these troubled times.

Jada has also volunteered at the Hollidaysburg Veterans Home and has participated in many Legion Rider events.
