Current Events

Thank You bakers & buyers for making our first Auxiliary Bake Sale, since March 2020, a great success! Our "First Thursday of the Month Bake Sales" will benefit our Child Welfare program providing clothing, goods & supplies to Kids-In-Need in our area. Hope to see you at our bake sale table on Thurs., Oct 5th, 6-8PM.

Pre-Pandemic: Our Ladies Auxiliary was the only nonprofit holding monthly bingo parties at the American Lake VA Blind Rehab (In-Patient) Center. Volunteers are now able to return to Blind Rehab. Please consider volunteering 3 hours of your time, once a month—to call Bingo or assist a blind patient at the VA. Contact Barbara Skinner (253) 678-1256.

The VA TRansitional Housing 22 residents are always in need of bus passes, Safeway gift cards, kitchen supplies (i.e., dish soap, tall trash bags, sponges & scrubbing pads) and bathroom supplies (i.e., Clorox wipes, bathroom cleaner, toilet paper). Please deliver your donations to the American Lake VAVS office or drop them off at the Post.

Holiday Meals Community Canned Food Drive: Gloria Harris is collecting non-perishable food to supplement Holiday Meals for our active-duty & Veterans Families In-Need: mac & cheese, stuffing, vegetables, cranberry sauce, cake mixes & frosting. Our donation bin is located in or near Chappie's Lounge. Please no "Expired" or past "Best Buy" dated non-perishables.

Do you know of a Veteran who needs “Home Food Delivered”? Text Darelyn Arter at (253) 405-5384.
