Hurricane Relief

Hurricane Relief

As you know, Florida has experienced several devastating storms over the past few years that has caused a lot of damage to not only our members, but our Legion Posts. During those times, we have always been able to rally the troops to collect and distribute goods and funds to the affected areas. However, it usually takes time for those donations to come in or items be delivered before we are able provide the necessary assistance.

In 2017, the Department of Florida created a Hurricane Relief Fund to distribute donated funds for disaster related expenses; water, food, paper products, etc. With the catastrophic damage that was created from Hurricanes Michael, Matthew, and Irma, the Department has used most of these funds to assist our Legion Family as they rebuild their homes, and livelihood that was taken from them.

Without the generosity of other Legion Departments, Posts and individuals, we will not be able to continue our efforts through the next hurricane season. It is our goal and mission to be prepared for the upcoming year and we are asking that you or your Post contribute to the Hurricane Relief Fund.

Just think, if another storm moves through the great state of Florida and causes damage, wouldn’t it be reassuring to know that you can count on your Department Headquarters to quickly assist you in your time of need?

If you would like to contribute to our Hurricane Relief Fund, please make checks payable to The American Legion, Department of Florida and include “Hurricane Relief” in the memo line. Checks or donations can be mailed to the Department Headquarters at the following address:

The American Legion, Department of Florida
Attn: Hurricane Relief
1912A Lee Road
Orlando, FL 32810

We can only be there for you if the funds are available and hope that you will help us be prepared for another hurricane season.
