PVR Bulletin – November 2019


Help Him Reach His Goal!

This year, the American Legion, Department of Florida’s Commander, William “Rick” Johnson, chose PROJECT: VetRelief as one of his charities of choice. Donations marked as “Commander’s Charity” will be divided equally between his two charities: PROJECT: VetRelief and Children’s Organ Transplant Association (COTA). If you would like your donation to go towards a specific charity, please note that on the check. For example, write “Commander’s Charity – PROJECT: VetRelief” in the memo line. All checks should be made payable to the American Legion.
Commander Johnson has set a lofty goal to raise $75,000 between the two charities. Before Fall Conference, the total amount raised for both charities this year was $15,983; $11,530 for PVR and $4,453 for COTA.
Legion Posts are asked to make a one-time donation or hold a fundraising event(s) to help him reach his goal. If you are planning an event for PROJECT: VetRelief, we can help promote it. Contact Jennifer Cooper by sending an email to jcooper@floridalegion.org with all the details!
Commander Johnson is in the middle of his District visits. While he’s making his rounds, give your donation to him and he will turn them into the Department Headquarters for you.


Central Florida Challenge 22 Ruck Walk

On Saturday, November 16th, The American Legion Post 63 in Winter Garden and Crooked Can Brewing Company are once again partnering to raise money and community
awareness of the 22 veteran and active duty suicides happening per day due to PTS. The Challenge 22 event is just one of the vehicles
used to create awareness and raise money for this important cause.
WE NEED YOU! Everyone can help make the Central Florida Challenge 22 Event and Ruck Walk a success and help us reach our goal of raising $100,000 to eliminate veteran suicide due to Post Traumatic Stress (PTS).
Individuals, families, businesses, community and civic groups are needed as walkers, sponsors, service providers, or donors/volunteers. Get involved and support this very important cause and save lives by registering to join the Ruck Walk, becoming a sponsor, donating, being a community partner, or volunteer.
The money raised will be distributed to organizations that provide help and hope to our fellow Americans, including PROJECT: VetRelief and K9-Line.
