The “Old Settlers VFW Post 4659” located in Shelby TWP., Michigan is
asking for donations to support 2 new roofs for our building. Our present roofs are over 30 years old, and it is time to replace them because of disintegrating shingles, numerous leaks and rotting wood.
The VFW Post 4659 has been in Shelby Twp. for over 75 yrs proudly serving our Veterans and our Community. Services provided our community include Funeral Honor Guards, sponsoring Scout Packs and Troops, awarding Scholarships for further education, support for the homeless and always honoring our fallen Heroes with Honor Guard and Funeral Ceremonies.
VFW Post 4659 members take great pride in the ceremonies held on Memorial Day, Veterans Day, and Labor Day to name just a few. Promoting civic responsibility, patriotism, and supporting youth and local programs in communities across
Michigan are just a few of the many ways we give back to those who have afforded us our freedom and the community that is so supportive of us.
Because of Corona Virus and our forced closing, we have used what funds we had to pay the bills and we lack the money to replace our Hall and Clubroom roofs. Our best quote for the replacement is in the area of $40,000 and this has hit us at the worst time possible. Up to this point, we have managed to be totally self-supporting during this closure but we are now asking for your needed support.
Please help VFW Post 4659 continue to honor the sacrifice of America’s Veterans beyond military service by being there to support them during rough times, and by helping them with a wide range of programs and services.
