Prologue

 

Post 5180 Sponsors This Organization that was established for the assistance of Veterans and their Families. In order to galvanize our community , The organization is open to the public and there is no requirement to be a veteran or belong to the VFW. It is our belief that We are best served by members of the VFW and the local community working together. Currently, approximately half of the members and Officers are not eligible for membership in the VFW. One more way to bring our community and this post together.

 

 

 

WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO

There are Veterans that live among us that have fallen on hard times, with the economy on a down hill slide and the steady depreciation of what medical coverage we have left, some Veterans are struglling to make ends meet. We know that we can't solve all of their problems, We also know that We can help improve their well being and quality of life by helping provide them with a safe, dry place to live.  We will continue to do everything we can to accomplish our mission of taking care of those that took care of this nation. This is our Covenant with all of America's Heroes.
