In the wake of Monday’s tragic tornado that decimated the community of Moore, Okla., local Auxiliary members are in desperate need of help. American Legion Auxiliary members selflessly serve veterans and military families in need everyday, however, when need strikes home, who is there to help them? Members helping members is what the Auxiliary Emergency Fund is all about. The AEF is available to help our own, when they need us most. When you give to the Auxiliary Emergency Fund, you’re giving a fellow member not just help, but hope. To assist our fellow members in need, please donate online here.
