Operating expenses to keep the VFW open

We are the VFW Post 728 in Danville, Il.  Sometime on July 6th to the 7th we were robbed.  We have been holding on by the skin of our teeth and now all of our operating money is now gone.  We support many projects at the local V.A. hospital.  Some of our other projects are at the Women's shelter, the Mens Homeless shelter, The VFW National Home for Widows and Children, homeless Veterans , sending care packages overseas and other VA Hospitals in the State.  We help educate young people about patriotism and proper care of the Flag.  We support the Jr Auxilaries and other charities to numerous to list.  Without an operating Post, all of this is lost.  Remember, these are the men who fight for your freedom  and they need your help.  We welcome any donation and we are very, very grateful. Thank you so much.  The money raised will go towards operating expenses and anything  beyond that will be used for programs mentioned before.
