Legacy Fund: Help reach $100,000 donation goal

More than $88,000 of the $100,000 goal for The American Legion Legacy Scholarship Fund has been raised even with the 2020 Legacy Run cancelled. The American Legion has created a tiered donation program to donate to the Legacy Fund now through Dec. 31. Visit www.legion.org/riders/legacyrun/donation.

Dec. 19 will mark the 29th National Wreaths Across America Day where more than an anticipated 1 million remembrance wreaths will be laid on the graves of America’s fallen veterans throughout the country and overseas. American Legion posts and Legion Family members participating in this annual program are encouraged to email sbrooks@legion.org in advance to share your plans.
