Current Happenings

  • Gently Used Clothing (And More) Drive Fundraiser.  We will be collecting gently used clothing, shoes, linens, stuffed animals - no appliances, glassware or household items. We are working with A&E of Carteret, NJ.  Items collected are distributed to where they are needed including the U.S., Eastern Europe, Africa, India and Latin America.  They are not sold for scrap.  With the Syrian refugee crisis on-going, Europe will likely be needing lots of help.  Drop off is at the Post home at 20 Ridgedale Avenue, Florham Park on the dates listed below.  Thank You! in advance for your support.  Please bring your donations in heavy duty bags.

     Our group of ladies are proud to be part of the largest women's patriotic organization in the world!  We participate in programs aimed at providing assistance to all those who served our country, their families and our community. 

     Through "Service, Not Self" along with our Legion Family we distribute Poppies in the community to foster patriotism and, with the proceeds, we provide support to our hospitalized veterans. 

     We welcome eligible volunteers to join us to help continue our mission for another 85 years of meaningful and fulfilling service to the men and women who have served in our Armed Forces.
