Each year more than $1.5 million is raised through the distribution of Buddy Poppies by VFW members.

When you are handed a Buddy Poppy, give generously. And, when you wear your Poppy, do it proudly. You are partners in a great work. Please help us make a Veterans Day poppy drive a success, so we can continue our work of helping all veterans.
