Memo from Department NEC Dennis Boland


Last year the Department of Florida won the Garland Murphy Award based on total contributions of $31,883.00 from June 1, 2014 through May 31, 2015.

With May 31st being approximately 7 weeks away, I am again asking for your support and contribution to The American Legion Child Welfare Foundation, Inc.

So far as of April 7th Florida American Legion has contributed $14,015.00 to the Foundation.

We are presently in third (3rd) place in donations as of April 7th. Below is the donations by Departments


STATE                                        DONATIONS           

Pennsylvania                              $21,988.55 

Iowa                                              $14,581.70

Florida                                          $14,015.00

As you can see we are behind the Department of Pennsylvania by $7,973.55. I know things are tuff, but if you can afford to make a donation to Foundation, we could possibly bring home The Garland Murphy Award again this year.

I will be leaving for Indianapolis on April 28th for the National Executive Committee meetings. If you would like for me to present your check at the Board of Directors meeting on May 1st, you can send the check to me at

314 Lake Ave
Lehigh Acres, FL 33936

Please have it arrive before April 28th. Or you can send your check to

The American Legion Child Welfare Foundation
PO Box 1055
Indianapolis, IN 46206

I am thanking you in advance for your consideration and support of the Foundation.
