Poppy Days

The American Legion Auxiliary organizes the annual Poppy Days distribution. When anyone donates to Poppy Days, they receive a poppy. The poppy is a symbol of the sacrifices our military have made. Poppy Days is the primary fundraising event for supporting veterans, active military and their families. 

Donations are used to support veterans at the St. James Veterans Home, Mexico Veterans Home, St. Louis Veterans Home, the St. Louis VA Medical Centers at John Cochran and Jefferson Barracks, Fisher House in St. Louis, the Veterans Community Project in St. Louis (tiny homes) and the Department of Veterans Affairs Outpatient Clinic and the Grandview Healthcare Center veterans activity fund, both in Washington. We support active-duty military through the USO. In the past we donated to the local Honor Flight.

In addition, auxiliary members use funds to make lab robes, pillowcases, wheelchair caddies, catheter bag covers, dining vests and large blankets for veterans in homes.
