"SAVE THE VFW"

We are a Veterans Organization that has been serving our community since 1946 - but unfortunately in 2016 we had a fire and had to get completely demolished.  For the last 3 years we have been going thru the rebuilding process and were finally able to open up again on August 13, but because of all the extensive costs we find ourselves close to the point of having to close our doors again.  Our VFW has the Honor Guard which provide military funeral services at Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery.  We also provide scholarships and school activities.  We serve our local veteran homes free luncheons at least twice a year and we send care packages to our overseas troops as often as we can. We also do Welcome Home and Send Off services for our soldiers going into or coming out of the military.  It breaks our heart to come to the point where we have to stop all these services so we are asking for help.  Our amazing Veterans deserve all the help we can give them and any donation you give will be used to help us continue with these services plus provide the Veterans a home to call their own.42800004_1571434754634024_r.jpeg
