Program Information:

The Poppy Program is the oldest and most widely recognized Auxiliary program.  Each. year around Memorial Day, Auxiliary volunteers distribute millions of bright red crepe paper poppies in exchange for contributions to assist disabled and hospitalized veterans.  The program provides multiple benefits to the veterans and to the community.  The hospitalized veterans who make the flowers are able to earn a small wage which helps to supplement their incomes and makes them feel more self-sufficient.  The physical and mental activity provides many therapeutic benefits as well.  Donations are used exclusively to assist and support veterans and their families.  The poppy also reminds the community of the past sacrifices and continuing needs of our veterans.  Auxiliary members endeavor to explain the true meaning of this little flower to all those who receive it.  the poppy has become a nationally known and recognize symbol of sacrifice and is worn and used by Auxiliary members to honor the men and women who served and died for their country in all wars.
