Buddy Poppy – Memorial Day Virtual Fund Raiser

Buddy Poppy - Memorial Day Virtual Fund Raiser

Our online fundraiser for Memorial Day was surprisingly successful, with a total of $9,278.86 received via our “Square” account from the various online media sources in which we promoted. In addition, approximately $1,500 more has been pledged as matching funds, bringing our total raised to more than $ 10,700. 

Our Post Relief Committee has reviewed the budget in light of these results and concluded that with the reserves on hand going into this period, no major cuts will be required in funding our usual causes for the 2020-21 fiscal year. While we hope to be back in front of the stores for Veterans Day, with what we have learned from this experience, we are optimistic about our ability to function with or without those personal appearances at the stores.
