Buddy Poppy Program

In spite of a cool, sometimes rainy May 28 morning, VFW 1810 volunteers hit the streets of Brentwood to collect donations in exchange for Buddy-Poppys.

In 1923 VFW National decided to have disabled veterans assemble the familiar red Poppies and compensate them for that work.  Additionally, the program provides financial assistance in maintaining state and national veterans rehabilitation and partially supports the VFW National Home for Children.  The first Buddy-Poppy Factory was in Pittsburgh and now they are put together by disabled veterans in VA Hospitals and homes around the country.  The VFW Buddy-Poppy name was trademarked and that name guarantees that they are genuine products of the work of disabled veterans.

Each year, nearly 68,800 students in grades 6-8 enter the VFW's Patriot's Pen youth essay contest for a chance to win their share of more than $1.4 million

Since 1947, the Voice of Democracy has been the Veterans of Foreign Wars’ (VFW’s) premier scholarship program. Each year, nearly 40,000 high school students compete for more than $2 million in scholarships and incentives. Students compete by writing and recording an audio essay on an annual patriotic theme.

Congratulations to VFW 1810's 1st 2nd and 3rd Place Winners for 2023 and to all students who participated.  The judges had a tough time picking out the winners.
