Update on Commander’s Charity and Challenge

Last month Department Commander Steve Shuga reached his fundraising goal of raising $50,000 for PROJECT: VetRelief! The Commander has decided to raise his goal to $75,000 to continue his efforts in providing funds for our Legion programs. He knows that with the generosity of the Legion Family and the passion they have for the Florida Legion programs, this goal is very attainable! We know you can help him reach his secondary goal, and ultimately help veterans and their families through our various programs!
Addtional monies collected for his project will now go towards ALL Florida Legion programs. Donations can still be made to PROJECT: VetRelief, just be sure to indicate where you’d like the funds to be applied to when submitting your donation.
We’d like to thank the following Posts, Units, Squadrons and Chapters who have already submitted their donations (order is listed by date received, not by amount given):
