2023-2024 Buddy Poppy Program
The VFW Buddy Poppy Program provides compensation to the Veterans who assemble the poppies and provides financial assistance in maintaining state and national Veterans’ rehabilitation and service programs. Poppies are to be ordered by December 31, 2023.
District Chairmen: Present your program at your first District meeting. Make sure each Post in your District has appointed a Post Buddy Poppy Chairman. Challenge them to buy more than they did the previous year. Remind them that all Buddy Poppy donations received are to be placed into the Post Relief Fund and used for that purpose only. A healthy relief fund is always important. Emphasize to all your Comrades that they are helping Veterans by purchasing the poppies and by seeking donations for them. Buying and collection donations for poppies puts our motto of "NO ONE DOES MORE FOR VETERANS” into full practice. Note: National also allows the use of Scouts to collect Buddy Poppy donations for Posts. The fundraising dates for Buddy Poppies are set up at the post level.
