VFW Post 10804 Exemplifies Veterans Helping Veterans

The Post is committed to helping fellow veterans and anticipates more efforts to provide assistance

VFW Post 10804 in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, is making sure veterans are cared for and have enough food during the COVID-19 crisis.

Post and Auxiliary members donate needed items to veterans during COVID-19Members of the Post work closely with the Veterans Welcome Home and Resource Center—known as the Hutton House—to help veterans experiencing hardship during the pandemic. They recently hosted two drives with Post 10804 Auxiliary to supply food and other crucial items.

"I also contacted the three VFW Posts closest to the clinic and told them of the needs,” said South Carolina District 7 Jr. Vice-Commander Bill La Monte, a VFW Gold Legacy Life Member of the Post and VA Voluntary Service Coordinator between the South Carolina VFW and the Myrtle Beach VA Clinic. 

"Groceries were needed to help several veteran families in desperate straits because of the coronavirus causing them a loss of work. Twice in the last month, we answered the call,” he said.

Post 10804 served as the collection point for food and supplies. The drives brought in a total of more than 1,200 pounds—over $1,100 worth—of nonperishable food and household goods. 

The donations were delivered to the Resource Center where volunteers assembled emergency packages for 36 veteran families who needed help. There was enough food to put together several extra packages, and those will be given out as more military families are in need.

In addition, Post 10804 Auxiliary provided ten $10 gift cards to the Myrtle Beach VA Clinic. Members of the Post also have made individual donations to the clinic including gift cards, clothing, cleaning supplies, personal care items and crossword puzzle books for patients.

The Post is committed to helping fellow veterans and anticipates more efforts to provide assistance will be coordinated in the near future.

The VFW and Sport Clips established the "Help A Hero" scholarship program in 2013, but have worked together for more than a decade to support America’s service members and their families. The VFW’s " Sport Clips Help A Hero Scholarship” program provides up to $5,000 of assistance to qualified individuals who have served in the military, are in need of financial assistance, and are pursuing an education at post-secondary institutions, including trade schools.

To date, Sports Clips, clients, team members and product partners have raised more than $3.6 million for the program, resulting in more than 800 scholarships being awarded. While our scholarship recipients’ career aspirations vary, these men and women share a common desire to make a difference and succeed for themselves, their families and their country. 

Donations to the "Help A Hero" campaign will be collected by Sport Clips stylists and other team members in stores and at local fundraising events. Sports Clips will also hold "The Biggest Haircut Day of the Year” on Veterans Day, November 11, when the company donates a dollar for every hair care service to the scholarship program, and many participatingstores will also offer free haircuts to service members and veterans with valid military identification.
