Reaching out to our communities is vital to our organization; developing relationships with community leaders, media, school faculty, and local civic groups can greatly assist each Post in achieving the VFW mission.

Community Service is defined as "Any activity or program sponsored or co-sponsored by a VFW Post and its VFW Auxiliary, which serves to benefit the city, town, neighborhood, other organizations, institutions or individuals NOT AFFILIATED with the VFW or its Auxiliary as a body."

Volunteer hours committed to projects and activities benefiting the Post and its affiliated units –as listed, CANNOT BE REPORTED.  Such as –  a Post dance, Post bingo, Post parties, and Post Christmas parties.

For more information about how the VFW services your community, contact the Department Programs Chair or your local Post, or go to Local Initiatives - VFW.
