Auxiliary at VFW Post 423 Ann Arbor
The VFW Post 423 Auxiliary meets monthly, and serves the Ann Arbor veteran and family community in multiple ways.
In 2023, the group has focused on donations. Every month, the Auxiliary gathers to pack snack bags, designed to comfort veterans at the Ann Arbor VA Medical Center. These bags provide food for veterans transitioning in between medical facilities, or are in need of sustenance for unexpected medical stays.
They also have made fleece blankets that are donated to veterans in hospice facilities.
