The contract with the Capper's Publications, stipulates that the money must be used to purchase hospital equipment. The equipment is available free of charge to anyone in the county needing it for temporary use. All the V.F.W. requires is that it be returned promptly, when it is no longer needed. The equipment is divided among five V.F.W. posts in Kossuth: Algona, Bancroft, Burt, Swea City, Tltonka; and Estherville, associate member. The equipment consists of hospital beds, wheel chairs, crutches, walkers and a few items of equipment that are not in demand often, and are moved around the county on demand.
