Hurricane Harvey Relief Effort

National Relief Efforts

The American Legion’s National Emergency Fund provides direct financial assistance to Legion Family members and posts impacted by natural disasters. To date, they have distributed more than $8 million in aid to people in desperate need.

While we do not yet know the full extent of the devastation along the Gulf Coast, we do know that The American Legion will continue to be there for Legionnaires who are impacted by hurricanes, floods, and other natural disasters, thanks to generous people like you.

A full 100 percent of donations to the National Emergency Fund are turned into grants for individuals, families, and posts impacted by natural disasters. Donations are not used to cover administrative or promotional costs.

Thank you in advance for your support. Please keep everyone impacted by Hurricane Harvey in your thoughts and prayers.
