Spearheaded by the VFW Foundation, the Tractor Supply Company (TSC), the largest farm and ranch store chain in the United States with over 1,100 retail stores nationwide, is offering the VFW a special opportunity to distribute Buddy Poppies at each location during the Memorial Day weekend. In conjunction with TSC’s “Salute Our Troops” campaign, TSC is inviting all VFW Posts and Departments to host events at a local TSC retail store.
TSC is generously providing the opportunity for each VFW Post and/or Department to distribute Poppies to their customers during this “high-volume” sales weekend for TSC and to educate the public on the many outstanding programs the VFW offers. This is an excellent format to recruit new members, network with the local community and communicate to the public the importance of Memorial Day.
Inquiries can be made directly with the local TSC store manager. TSC has made it easy to register your Post or Department by calling a toll-free hotline at 877-234-0623. Once registered, a local TSC store manager will reach out to you to make arrangements.
Take this opportunity from TSC to communicate to the public the great things the VFW does within their community. It can be as little as shaking some hands and distributing Poppies to hosting a full scale event for the general public. Please call the toll-free hotline with any questions about the Memorial Day event. Also, please thank the TSC store personnel that you appreciate their support for U.S. troops, veterans and military families.
