People came together in Canfield Thursday to help local American Legion Post 177 and the Canfield McDonald's raise money to honor local veterans. 

The funds will be used to purchase a 60-foot flagpole that will be placed on the North section of the Village Green. 

During the fundraiser, American Legion workers got behind the counters to take orders from 5-8 p.m. to help drive sales. 

McDonald's then donated 20 percent of the proceeds directly to the cause. 

Donations can still be made to the Canfield American Legion at PO Box 53, Canfield, OH 44406.
