Help our Department become 100% plus!

Extra… Extra…. READ ALL ABOUT IT!  If we get our 100% plus in membership before February 15, our Department President will be given a $100 gift card from National, she can use on the Mid Winter cruise.  WE CAN DO THIS!  Please encourage our Auxiliaries to send in those dues.  We only need 333 to be 100% plus.  Show our Veterans how much we care by making us bigger and stronger. 

MEMBERSHIP NEWS FLASH!

At our Department Winter Conference in February:
We will have our first two drawings for Auxiliaries that reach their 100% by December 20, 2016 and February 1, 2017. Every Auxiliary that is 100% will go into this drawing and we will draw out one Auxiliary for December 20 and one Auxiliary for February 1. The winning Auxiliaries will receive $100. Remember: Dues must be in our Dept. Treasurer Jeri’s hands by the above dates. So, if you are mailing, you must mail early so they are not late.

NEWS FLASH NEWS FLASH NEWS FLASH
If the winning Auxiliaries are 100% plus (at least one member over
100%) We will double the money! You will receive $200 instead of $100!

If you win the first drawing, your Auxiliary goes back in for the next drawing, so you could come home with $400. So, the sooner you get your 100% plus the better chance you have at getting big money.

BURGER KING Restaurants Launch Annual VFW Fundraiser

BURGER KING Restaurants Launch Annual VFW Fundraiser Funds raised to support the VFW’s Unmet Needs troop assistance program

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – November 1, 2016 – The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the U.S. is pleased to announce that for the tenth consecutive year, participating BURGER KING ® restaurants will raise funds for the VFW Unmet Needs program throughout the month of November. Patrons are encouraged to donate $1 or more to the program upon checkout. The fundraising campaign officially begins November 1.

Established in 2004, the Unmet Needs program assists service members and military families during times of financial hardship by providing monetary assistance toward basic life necessities such as rent, mortgage and utility payments, vehicle repair, medical expenses and food. Grants of up to $5,000 are awarded, and to date, the Unmet Needs program has provided more than $5.8 million in aid to struggling service members, veterans and their families.

Since 2007, participating BURGER KING franchised restaurants have raised more than $3.84 million in support of the program. Over 900 locations nationwide participated in last year’s fundraising campaign with even higher participation expected this year.

“For nearly a decade, BURGER KING restaurants and their loyal patrons have demonstrated a very impressive amount of support for the members of our armed forces,” said VFW National Commander Brian Duffy. “BURGER KING franchisees’ generosity enables the VFW to assist our nation’s military families when they need it most, and we are so appreciative of their continued support and dedication. I’m encouraging VFW members, and all Americans to stop into your local BURGER KING restaurant and help those who are working to support this vital campaign.”
