We are looking for help from members and our community.

The Alvarado VFW Auxiliary Post 9299 has several projects we are working on which I would like to ask your help with.

1. Coupons- Any type – Food or products – must have at least 6 months left from expiration date. The manufacturers allow the military families overseas to use in their commissaries even after expiration date.

2. Travel size shampoo’s and soaps, etc – when you travel and you do not use the supplies in your bathroom at your hotel please consider bringing back and donating. We use these for the homeless veteran’s packets. You may need to check this in your luggage in a plastic bag.

3. Campbells Soup Labels – we send these to the VFW National Home for Children. This helps with daycare, preschool and recreation programs.

In addition to Campbell soup labels, the national Home can accept other proofs of purchase (i.e. UPC symbols, lids, cash register tapes) from other Campbell’s products.

Many product labels qualify for the program such as Campbell, Chef’s Kettle, Early California, Franco-American, Marie’s Dressings, Mrs. Pauls, Open Pit, Pepperidge Farm, Prego, Sanwa, Specialty Kitchens, Swanson, V8, Vlasic.

You only need to provide the label bar code for most soups and products.

4. Needing some new wash cloths and hand towels to help make up our VA homeless care packages so that when they leave the night shelters they have some personal items to clean with. Thank you!

If you can help, drop your label bar codes off at the post meeting or send them to the Alvarado post address.

Military Awareness Month is November.
Let a Veteran family know that you are aware and are grateful for the sacrifice they give daily in support of their family member that is serving. The family of a veteran needs our support.

Each year the President signs a proclamation declaring November Military Family Month. This annual proclamation marks the beginning of a month-long celebration of the Military Family in which the Department of Defense and the nation will honor the commitment and sacrifices made by the families of the nation's servicemembers.
Throughout the month of November, military families serving around the world are honored through a variety of observances and recognized for their commitment and the many contributions they make every day in support of the military and our nation. Efforts to recognize the sacrifices of the military family by Active, Guard, and Reserve leaders are being joined and supported by DoD organizations to include the Army Air Force Exchange Service, Defense Commissary Agency, and others.
Community leaders, businesses, and military bases and posts are teaming up to recognize military families through special events such as: open houses, fun runs, family fun nights, and community dinners; discounts at MWR facilities, local business and sporting events; and special recognitions during community activities throughout the month of November.
