Engage your local community early and often by placing announcements in your local media on the events your post is participating in or hosting. On the day of the event and afterward, share what’s happening on your social media and web pages.
Blood donor drive
Thanksgiving kicks off the annual Blood Donor Drive, this year from Nov. 22-24. Share how your post is participating on social media.
Many posts sponsor toy drives, welcome local servicemembers or reservists into their buildings or do other charity work around the holidays. Let us know how your post is making sprits bright this holiday season by submitting a story at www.legiontown.org.
American Education Week
This is an opportunity to honor a patriotic teacher, or a veteran who is now an educator. Honoring them with a certificate and promoting it via social media will go a long way in your community.
