The American Legion steps in to assist wildfire victims

Recent wildfires raging across Colorado and other western states have caused millions of dollars of damage and personal loss. During these difficult times, Legionnaires and

Sons of the American Legion may be eligible for financial assistance through the Legion’s National Emergency Fund (NEF).

Eligible members may receive up to $1,500 in emergency assistance. Applicants must have been displaced from their primary residence and provide proof of out-of-pocket expenses, including, but not limited to, temporary housing, food, water and clothing.

The American Legion or Sons of The American Legion membership must be active at time of disaster and the time of application.

Detailed information and an application for NEF assistance may be downloaded at www.legion.org/emergency. For further information or assistance call (800) 433-3318.
