The Legion contacts officials at military hospitals, warrior transition units and surrounding communities, and obtains lists to determine which items are needed by wounded, injured or ill servicemembers. Once a need is identified, the items are ordered by the Legion and delivered in an expeditious manner. It's as simple as that. No red tape.
All of OCW's administrative and marketing costs are paid by the Legion's general fund, meaning that 100 percent of donated funds go directly to purchasing comfort items for the troops.
