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 get back to helping out with in our community. Host a pizza and movie night so parents can shop for back-to-school items, collect items for your local food bank, check with your social services see if they need help with school items, Christmas gifts and food or Thanksgiving meals. See if your parks n rec needs volunteer6s when they hold events or your police department when they hold national night out… hold an event for Make a Difference Day or Sept 11th or Martin Luther King Day. Hold a blood drive and include the community in it.
My project this year will be donate to your local food banks and send me a write-up about it and pictures if have them.
