Do you want to support your Post with its veteran and community service programs? You can very easily. We are currently participating in the Dillons Neighborhood Rewards Program. Simply purchase a card through the Post and as you use your card to buy groceries or fuel you help accumulate credits for the Post. Phone or stop into the Post to buy your card and get information. Ph. 265-3255.
We are renewing a fundraising effort that was started a number of years ago. The ceiling tiles of the Canteen are stenciled with the names of members and Ladies that gave to the Post in the past and wanted to have their names enshrined at the Post. For a minimum donation of $10.00 you can have your name among our previous donors. If you wish to participate, send your donation with your name as you want it to appear to:
VFW Post 112
1560 S. Topeka
Wichita, Kansas 67211
These moneys will help us continue our support of veterans in the community, at our local VA Hospital or wherever a veteran is in need.
We Thank You for your support.
