The VFW National Home for Children has been helping children and families for many years. They are there for all who have problems and for deployed parents who have no one to leave thier children with. Also for returning veterans who need help returning to society Our help-line is able to connect and help veterans throughout the country.

As a Board Member, I am helping raise money for National Home by starting a fund raising contest between the three States that I represent by offering trophies for the largest donation for the year of 2011. The contest is for Post and Auxiliaries in all three States. I have been the National home chairperson for 12 years. I feel that the work we do there is very important. I love the National Home and all the children and the Military Families who live there. The Home has always been very Special to me every since I made my first visit there. I have raised over $10,000 for the Home for different things. I help raise $1,300 every year for gift cards at Christmas through my Auxiliary. I do that as a Make A Difference Day Project. I hope to can contiue to do this and more over the next 5 years. Yvonne crawford District 4 Trustee
