COMMUNITY SERVICE
American Legion Auxiliary Department of Virginia 2023-2023

Key Program Statements

  • Making our communities better places in which to live is something Auxiliary members strive for each day across this country.

  • A major outreach program of the Auxiliary since 1926, Community Service also demonstrates our longstanding commitment to supporting the work of American Legion posts and other organizations in providing, assistance with blood drives, first aid and CPR training, child safety programs, support for women in shelters, and disaster and emergency preparedness programs.

Let’s strive to make our country and communities a better place to live for ALL citizens! There are many, many ways to help in our local communities—the possibilities are endless! Plan to make a difference in your community throughout the year, not just during the holidays. Volunteer to stage/participate in a food or clothing drive, support local youth organizations/sports, mentor/tutor students, participate in a walk/run to support a charity, help a neighbor with house/yard work, grocery shopping, or getting to appointments, visit a senior citizen home, take part in 9/11 National Day of Service (September) or MLK Jr. National Day of Service (January), etc. In other words, spread kindness and pay it forward!

Please send me pictures and write-ups about your projects no matter how “big” OR “little” they may be!

End of year report forms are due by April 15, 2023.
