The Gildo T. Consolini, VFW Post 3272, will be conducting the 2021 Poppy Drive virtually this year due to COVID-19. Our members are veterans of WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq and the Global War on Terror. With your generous support, we raise on average $20,000 dollars annually to support Veteran Organizations.
Due to COVID, our members are not able to conduct our normal fundraising events since this would place both our veterans and the local comunity at a higher risk. In lieu of this, VFW Post 3272, will be doing a virtual Poppy Drive as well as placing donation containers in local area business venues.
Our goal this year is to continue our legacy of supporting the local and national organizations listed below, while keeping us all safe during this pandemic. On behalf of our members we thank you for your assistance in our endeavor!
Please visit both our FaceBook page and our Official VFW page to find out more about our organization.
