Because of You!
Because of your Support to your Local Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) and the VFW Auxiliary, we’re able to do more for our Local Veterans, Schools, Children, and Community.
Your Donations will enable VFW 10859 Post & Auxiliary to support Veteran & Community Programs and Charities such as:
* We sponsor MP Company 422; a Reserve Unit right here in Bakersfield.
* We provide the Bakersfield Sea Cadets, a local youth group, with uniforms.
* We donate to the Local Honor Flight Program.
* We support the local Wounded Heroes Fund.
* We support the California Veterans Assistant Foundation. A local organization that helps homeless Veterans.
* We support the local VA Clinic.
* Yearly, we recognize and provide monetary awards to local Police, Firefighters, EMT, and Teachers.
* We organize essay contests; Patriot Pen for Middle school Students and the Voice of Democracy for High School Students.
* We organize a Patriotic Art Contest for High School Students.
* We sponsor local School Projects; such as the Chess Club & Robotics Club.
* We do fund raisers targeted to support Veterans, Widows, and orphans.
* We support the National Home for Children.
* We support the “Next Step Service Dogs” for Veterans with PTSD.
* We participate in events in Bakersfield to bring awareness of Veteran Issues; such as Homelessness and Suicides.
