Riverview VFW Post 8108 Auxiliary

Did you ever wonder what Auxiliary Members do? They crochet and knit lap robes for veterans in the hospital. Members are savers of many things. General Mills Box Tops for Education – Campbell Soup Labels – both help schools earn extra materials for their classrooms. They help families of our active military. They collect items to be sent to the troops. They sponsor children’s after school activities. They raise money by sponsoring bake sales, and dinners. They socialize at monthly meetings planning and making Christmas items for our veterans and for the nursing homes. They inform the organization with information on candidates and bills for the good of our veterans. They make a positive difference in the lives of artistically talented 9th through 12th grade high school students by offering them the opportunity to enter the Young American Creative Patriotic Art competition. They assist the VFW in the Voice of Democracy Audio/Essay Scholarship contest which is also offered to 9th through 12th grade high school students. They also offer 6th through 8th grade students the opportunity to enter the Patriot’s Pen Essay Contest and offer students Kdg-5th grade the opportunity to enter our Americanism Coloring/Poster/Essay Contest. They are the spouses, widows, widowers, parents, foster and stepparents, grandparents, children, foster and stepchildren, grandchildren, siblings, half siblings, foster and step siblings of persons who are or were eligible for membership in the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States. Members must be citizens of the United States and not less than sixteen (16) years old. Now that you know what they do and who they are …… why not become an Auxiliary member? New members pay $35.00 their first year and at this time our annual dues are only $25.00 a year. There is something for everyone to do. If you’re not up to attending our meetings we are in need of lap robes and Diddy Bags for our veterans at the VA Hospital. Just contact our Auxiliary President, Lori Yeago, at 813-506-0459 and she will make sure you receive copies of the patterns of the items needed. All items are taken to the James A. Haley VA Hospital the 3rd Tuesday of each month. All donations that are given for the books in the bookcase, in our dining hall, are used to help our veterans at the James A. Haley VA Hospital. If you know of someone that is interested in being a member of our Auxiliary please have them contact the Auxiliary President, Lori Yeago at 813-506-0459.
