VFW Post 10069 Auxilliary has donated a total of $1,000 in school supplies to five area schools. The auxiliary’s purpose is to serve and aid Veterans as well as support the community in which we live. We’re hoping that these donations will also raise awareness of the scholarship programs sponsored by the VFW and the Auxilliary.

They include Patriot’s Pen with this year’s essay theme being “Why I Honor The American Flag” and Voice of Democracy with the theme “Why My Vote Matters.” There are cash awards at the Post, District, State and National levels. For more information students can contact their school administrators or the Post on Trout Avenue in HighlandView.
