Why Do They Distribute Red Buddy Poppy Flowers In Lufkin, Texas?
In the days leading up to Memorial Day, our local VFW post along with VFW posts all across the nation, distribute the red Buddy Poppy flowers. They remind us of the sacrifices that paid for the freedoms we enjoy today.
Recent world events make these heroic actions of the past seem even more real. Hopefully it will inspire you to make a donation during this time.
The donations that are received by VFW posts during the month of May through this Buddy Poppy campaign are marked as restricted funds by the VFW National Headquarters. They are earmarked for veteran assistance programs only. So when you give at this time, know that your money is going right where it should.
