VFW conducting annual poppy drive

Greenwood VFW members will host their annual Memorial Day poppy drive this weekend to honor veterans.

Approximately 40 volunteers are needed to help with the distribution of poppies at several business locations Saturday.

Those who wish to help out should call Commander Steve Milbourn at 317-525-7291. Volunteers will meet at the post at 7:30 a.m. Saturday to be at the businesses by 9 a.m. There will be at least two people at each location. Volunteers are advised to bring chairs if they have trouble standing.

All money collected goes into the post’s relief fund which helps veterans, their families and children and homeless veterans in dire economic need during emergencies. A donation in any amount is appreciated.
