Emergency Alert

The VFW National Home for Children is in dire need to upgrade their Emergency Communications System. Since they are located so far from the nearest town, they must be able to advise the residents when they are threatened. Many buildings on the campus are even beyond the reach of cellphone towers that prevents them from sending text message and phone calls when an emergency occurs.

Please consider making a gift to their “Safety & Security Fund”. This system will be used to alert the children, families and staff in all buildings on the campus. They will have public address speakers that all people can hear no matter where they are. There will also be an Alert Beacon that will flash and sound off. This system is needed to keep the campus prepared for potential threats. Please make any donations directly to VFW National Home for Children, 3573 South Waverly Road, Eaton Rapids, MI 48827 and earmark it for “Safety and Security Fund”.

Thank you for all your help to keep our veterans and their families safe at the home.
