VFW Emergency Relief Fund

On behalf of the Commander-in-Chief, thank you for your outpour of prayers and donations for those in the path of Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma.

Initially, our response was limited to only Hurricane Harvey. You were asked to send funds to our National Disaster Relief Fund in support of those VFW members affected in Texas and Louisiana. Your response was nothing short of incredible. Unfortunately, the advent of Hurricane Irma and now Hurricane Jose lingering in the Atlantic, coupled with an unprecedented amount of wildfires out west, we now realize we are facing a series of disasters that will require a larger response. I am asking for your help in providing us the flexibility to be able to offer support to other areas.
