Our success depends entirely on active membership, participation, volunteerism and financial support. The American Legion is a nonpartisan, not-for-profit organization and like many non-profits in this country, funding is limited and expenses often go beyond the cash available. Fundraising is essential to the post, as we work hard to support the community and assist every veteran and his/her family members who walk through our doors.
