Post 359 "Failure Is Not An Option"

Apollo Kelley Garcia   NORWALK, CA
We have 90 days to raise $45,000.00 or we lose our home.  The Norwalk, California, American Legion is the last standing veterans organization in the city. It is a resource for veterans, a gathering place of friends, family and patriotic minded individuals who have honorably and proudly served this country during times of war and conflict. Our programs support soldiers both stateside and overseas, we support their families, we provide college scholarships, and we contribute the majority of our funds to programs and services that benefits veterans, soldiers and their families all over the world. Last week we were notified that the heir of a recently deceased member (and creditor) is calling in on a personal loan for the full amount of the debt. This is more than 2 years early and without notice. In 90 days the law allows the heir to foreclose on our building and sell it at auction.  Please help us raise the funds we need to continue our positive works in the community and for the soldiers and families that we assist every day. Thank you.
