Post volunteers participated in the first weekend of the ”Buddy Poppy” Campaign — April 29 thru May 1. The start of a month long fundraiser to educate the public and to solicit donations.
The threat of rain didn’t stop the completion of the weekend’s scheduled events. The event was at Wake Forest and Louisburg Walmarts.
Volunteers will continue collecting funds and educating the public of the meaning and history of the “Buddy Poppy”. Funds collected during this campaign will be used to help needy veterans and their families.
