Children & Youth Call for Help

Post Commanders/Adjutants,

Your help is needed. As you are aware, our two fundraisers for 2020 were cancelled due to the pandemic. Because of this we were only able to raise a small amount of funds (donations) to help the youth of Florida. Also, due to the pandemic, there are more youth and families with children that are in need of our assistance.

This year, due to the S.A.L. holding a golf tournament on the date that we were to hold our Department of Florida Children & Youth golf tournament and their proceeds going to C.O.T.A., we only have our Children & Youth Picnic and Coin sales to provide the necessary donations needed for the Children & Youth Programs. Therefore, this is a plea to all of our Posts for help. We need all of our Posts to participate in the Annual Children & Youth Picnic that is being held at Post 1 in Titusville, on April 3, 2021.

How can you participate? You can participate by attending the picnic, enjoying a great lunch and comradery. You can also help by sending or bringing a basket of cheer or other items that can be raffled off. Posts that cannot attend or send a basket, please consider sending in a check for $100 to $500. With nearly 300 Posts in Florida, we should have a successful year and make up for some of last year’s loss. (Make checks payable to Dept. of Florida American Legion. In the memo put Children & Youth Picnic and mail to the address below.

Thank you in advance for your participation and remember, the Fourth Pillar of The American Legion is CHILDREN AND YOUTH.
