Our Post raised $820.00 for the Steam to Serve Fundraiser

Join Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) May 26 2024 – June 16 2024 for Capture the Flag!

Capture the Flag is a livestream fundraising event centered on honoring our nation’s bravest from Memorial Day weekend (May 26) through Flag Day (June 14). We are uniting live streamers and fundraisers to help transform the way America’s injured veterans are empowered, employed, and engaged in our communities.

Seventy-six percent of warriors report living with invisible wounds like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and anxiety, and with your help, warriors can get the care they need – and deserve.* Your support will help WWP continue providing programs that focus on connection, independence, and mental, physical, and financial wellness to help injured veterans build resilience, coping skills, and peer connection. We believe that every warrior should have a bright future to look forward to. There’s always another goal to achieve, another mission to discover, and we are their partner in that mission.

 "VFW Post 4780 and its Auxiliary volunteers build a raised flower bed on May 12 last year at the Veterans Home in Humboldt, Tenn., for its VFW Day of Service project. Four VFW members, two Auxiliary members, three children of a Post member and one community resident gathered to construct and plant a raised flower bed for residents in the Alzheimer’s and dementia area of the home. The raised bed allows those in wheelchairs to wheel up to it and pull weeds or cut flowers. Post 4780 member Hannah Blurton said the bed was built in an enclosed patio area, and perennials were planted. Blurton later learned that the flower bulbs were removed and corn was planted for the residents’ enjoyment. For this year’s Day of Service project, the Post plans to create a Blessing Box on its property. Such a box will contain non-perishable items for those in the community who may need it. "We want to make sure our community is taken care of,” Blurton said."



Join us as brothers and sisters of America to preserve the rights of veterans and support each other as only those who share in the camaraderie forged by conflict can.
