In 1949, the Filipino Farmers and Labors Association realized their dream of constructing a building for the Filipino community. Their dream became a reality and the Magellan Hall Community Center was born. After completion, they gifted in perpetuity the building to the newly formed American LegionPost 604 comprised of Filipino American WWII veterans. The building became known as Magellan Hall and it has served the community at large since “1950”.
Our present goal is to raise 100K. Before the arrival of the rainy season in the wintertime, we must replace the facade of the building that was torn down due to rot and decay. Without a new facade, rainwater would easily seep in under the threshold of the building causing more interior damage. Not only do we need a new facade, but we also need our gravel parking lot paved for the safety and welfare of our older veteran community.
We are reaching out to the community and beyond to help us achieve our goal.
As proud American Veteran Legionnaires we will continue to promote local fund raising efforts to meet our goals but we cannot do it without your help.
The needs of Magellan Hall are immediate, please consider donating. Our commitment to you is that 100% of every dollar we raise will be used to preserve this proud Historical building that has served our community for the past 70 plus years.
