Like many non-profit groups, our ability to hold fundraisers has been limited this year because of Covid-19. We are asking our community to help us continue to assist Veterans, their families, and continue our many community services. The American Legion Post 71 in North Augusta has served our community since the Post was started in the 1940’s. Please consider donating.
