The Service Officer leads our efforts to assist veterans in our area. All genuine requests for assistance are screened by the Service Officer and approved by the Board of Directors. It's common for us to directly provide food, shelter, clothing, training, benefits assistance, job assistance, or financial assistance to numerous veterans each month. In addition, we share resources with other Legion posts in our area. We also provide funds to the American Legion Department of Georgia for impact throughout our state.
We organize several annual fundraisers to benefit important programs in our area. Through our Veterans Memorial 5k Race we support several unique veterans organizations, including Shepherd's Men and the Georgia National Guard Family Support Foundation. Through our Charity Golf Tournament we provide funds to the Children's Charities of the Marietta and Cobb County first responder organizations.
