Raising Funds for Veterans Relief

We are dusting off our outside chairs, checking the rigging of our VFW Service Canopy, and scheduling fall events at the Franklin Street downtown Post Office.  We will be on site September 7, 21st and 28th.  We return on October 26, and in November we will be there on the 2nd and 23rd.

 

Our focus this year is the VFW Buddy Poppy Program and recruiting local veterans.

 

Chapel Hill’s Post 9100 members gather at the Franklin Street Post Office Plaza to “meet and greet” passersby and veterans.  We do this for several reasons.  

  1. To engage the public and share the mission of the Veterans of Foreign Wars.
  2. To share the programs of the VFW; for example: Voice of Democracy and Patriot’s Pen Scholarships
  3. Share the mission of the VFW Buddy Poppy program and its benefit to local Veterans’ Relief.
  4. To assist those seeking information on VA resources, claims, and the services of the Orange County Veterans Service Office.
