You Too Can Help Our Less Fortunate Veterans

Ed Davis

If you would like to make a meaningful difference in the lives of local veterans in need, there is no better way than to support your local American Legion veterans service organization. “The American Legion Oro Valley Post 132 has been a steadfast ray of hope to our local, less fortunate veterans for years,” says the chairman of the Tucson Veterans Serving Veterans Alliance. We are making a difference.

As a not-for-profit veterans service organization, fundraising is the only way in which we are able to fund our care and assistance programs, which have been recognized and honored by military organizations and other veterans’ groups. The funding of our award-winning programs is dependent entirely on the generosity of the community.

To help us carry on our mission of hope, we are sponsoring our 12th annual charity golf tournament. This year’s golf tournament is Saturday, Aug. 21 at The Views Golf Club in Oro Valley, a favorite of golfers. One hundred percent of the proceeds stay local and will be used to provide care and assistance to homeless veterans, other veterans in need, and to the families of the deployed soldiers of our “adopted” Arizona National Guard and Reserve Units, our citizen soldiers.
