2021 - 2022 President's Special Project - Military Family Assistance Fund

President Colleen Phillips has chosen the Military Family Assistance Fund as her Special Project. She is asking that Units and members donate to this program. This program has been struggling for a couple of years to have the funds needed to help our veterans and military families in their time of need. Please check out the resources page for the Military Family Assistance Fund brochure that tells about this program. Grants for veterans and military families can be provided up to $750.00 to help defray costs for needed expenses. The application that needs to be completed can also be found in the resources page. The application needs to completed and then submitted to a local American Legion Auxiliary Unit for approval before being sent on the ALA Department Headquarters. If you have further questions that were not answered by the brochure, please contact Vicky at ALA Department Headquarters for further information. She can be reached at . Remember, Units can use their restrict funds to make a donation as this program is for veterans and military families. MAKE YOUR DONATION TODAY!
