American Legion Auxiliary (ALA) members and volunteers step up to advance our mission of service to veterans, military and their families! Our annual volunteer service is worth nearly $2 billion!
This past year alone, ALA members:
- Volunteered more than 10 million hours in mission service, with 5.8 million hours dedicated to serving veterans at home, in hospitals, and in shelters; and helped 865,200 active-duty military families.
- Raised and donated nearly $45 million for mission service, with $5.5 million raised from Poppy Program donations, $2 million awarded in scholarships, and $45 million spent aiding military families.
Over the years, The American Legion Family has influenced considerable social change in America, won hundreds of benefits for veterans, helped military families through transition and produced many important programs for our country’s youth.
