Buddy Poppy / National Home for Children
National Home Support
The VFW National Home is a living, breathing memorial. Through Service to our Veterans, our VFW Auxiliary made a vow to provide love, care and education to the children and grandchildren of our deceased or disabled Veterans. We must never falter in our efforts to provide a nurturing and secure environment for the children of our National Home. The home, located in Eaton Rapids, Michigan, is on 630 acres of farm land and has 70 buildings that include the brick homes, library, community center, chapel, guest lodge, nursery school, teen center, fire department, administration buildings and its own water treatment and sewage plant. The Health and Happiness Christmas Cheer Fund assures that each child received a Christmas gift and gifts for members of his or her family.
The VFW Auxiliary aids the VFW in distributing Buddy Poppies to help disabled Veterans.
