COMMUNITY/STATE/NATION DONATION PAGE
Your local American Legion Post 179 located in West Ashley at 1748 Ashley Hall Rd, Charleston, SC needs your tax-deductible support now more than ever.
In March 2020, we began a much needed, major renovation. Then COVID hit and stopped all production. All too common is what happened next. Supply chain issues, labor shortages, and lumber cost increases caused the project to come to a halt. Two years later, the partially completed project sits unused waiting for funds to complete it.
Our original budget for this major renovation was that of $600,000.00, we have so far spent $637,000.00, to continue this effort and to make this a true success, we need the support of our Community and State and Nation in the form of donations. We have an ambitious, yet with your support achievable, goal of raising $200,000.00!
We do so many wonderful things within our community but cannot continue without a permanent site. An American Legion Post site is used to conduct routine meetings and fundraising events to support things like the following:
- Assist needy and disabled Veterans, their widows and/or orphans
- Provide care and assistance to hospitalized Veterans
- Sponsor and participate in patriotic activities
- Organize fundraisers for local charities or groups for underprivileged children
Perhaps most of all, the Legion gives members and their families a place to gather and reflect on those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for the freedoms that we all enjoy today. Our Veterans and members need us more than ever and we are depending on you to make this happen. Please donate anything you can and help us reach our goal!
The American Legion Post 179 is a 501(c)(19) Veteran organization, so you have the benefit of deducting your charitable contributions on your federal income tax returns.
Please spread the word near and far so we can continue to serve our community and our members out of the comforts of our own American Legion. Thank you so much!
For God and Country,
Commander District 2, Dept. of SC
