 My name is Laurie Sparwasser. I am honored to be chosen by our Department President, Samantha Schmidgall to be the Veterans and Family Support Chairman for her “BELIEVE«BELONG «BECAUSE” 2016-2017 year. 

 

As promised, we have come up with a special project for the VFW National Home for Children.  National Home had given us some projects to consider and President Samantha and I have decided on “The Nursery Summer Fun Time” package.  This includes a Children’s World Shade Tree Canopy including installation, covered sand box that is 5 ft. by 5 ft., 2 benches for under the canopy, purchasing and planting of a shade tree in the play area and landscaping around the canopy and benches for a total of $8,473.69.

There will be an award for the Auxiliary that submits the most money towards this project from fundraising and a citation to all auxiliaries that donate.   This sounds like a lot of money for a project but it comes out to about $50 if every auxiliary makes a donation. 

The VFW National Home for Children is an important part of the Veteran’s and Family Support program that we support and this Nursery package will really help them.  Please consider helping them with this project. 

Please send all donations to Ruth Smit marked for VFW National Home project.  Thank you in advance for all you do for Veterans and Family Support.
