Help Him Reach His Goal!
This year, the American Legion, Department of Florida’s Commander, William “Rick” Johnson, chose PROJECT: VetRelief as one of his charities of choice. Donations marked as “Commander’s Charity” will be divided equally between his two charities: PROJECT: VetRelief and Children’s Organ Transplant Association (COTA). If you would like your donation to go towards a specific charity, please note that on the check. For example, write “Commander’s Charity – PROJECT: VetRelief” in the memo line. All checks should be made payable to the American Legion.
Commander Johnson has set a lofty goal to raise $75,000 between the two charities. Before Fall Conference, the total amount raised for both charities this year was $15,983; $11,530 for PVR and $4,453 for COTA.
Legion Posts are asked to make a one-time donation or hold a fundraising event(s) to help him reach his goal. If you are planning an event for PROJECT: VetRelief, we can help promote it. Contact Jennifer Cooper by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with all the details!
Commander Johnson is in the middle of his District visits. While he’s making his rounds, give your donation to him and he will turn them into the Department Headquarters for you.
