YOUTH PROGRAMS: VFW Post 210 Is active in our community sponsoring many youth activities that build strong character and patriotism. Patriots Pen, Voice of Democracy, Support for Scouting are just a few of our programs.
Looking for a hands on opportunity to serve veterans and their families? Join the VFW Post 210 Ramp Team. Our Ramp team builds ramps to help veterans in wheel chairs to safely enter and exit their home. The team also helps veteran families in need complete critical repairs and maintenance to help them stay in their home. Terry Branham, Retired Army COL, leads the teams to provide good works to our veteran community.
Marc Anderson has led our Poppy Distribution Campaign the last 2 years and raised over $50,000 for veteran service programs. In 2018 Marc's team raised over $28,000 in May. This great work allows the post to put on Memorial ceremonies to honor our deceased comrades. The fundraising also allows us to lend a helping hand to veterans. In 2018 we helped a severely disabled Lakeville Iraq veteran to renovate home to be more adaptive to his injuries to help his young family. Our ramp team also helped many other veteran families with urgent needs like wheelchair accessible access to their homes after debilitation. Funds will be put to use on emergency repairs to support local veterans. For aid to Veterans Home in Hastings and other urgent needs in our community.
