National Emergency Fund

Since The American Legion was founded in 1919 we have been actively involved in meeting the needs of both the community and American Legion family members. In the ’20s, The American Legion entered into an agreement with The American National Red Cross, later called The American Red Coss, to assist them in disaster relief and fund raising.

The programe became known as The American Legion’s Disaster Relief Program and worked in conjuction with The Red Cross for about 50 years. Over that time, The American Legion through its many local posts assisted our Nation’s residents without housing assistance, food, supplies and cleanup after a number of major disasters.

Juliet Riverdogs,” Unger said. “The post membership got behind this program and have wholeheartedly supported the young players who have been given an opportunity to play one of America’s favorite past times.”
