Since 1919, the American Legion has provided services to our military veterans and families, promoted Americanism and encouraged support for our active duty military. Your local American Legion Post 162 is reaching out for much-needed support in continuing our programs:
* We ship care packages to Hillsdale, Old Tappan and Woodcliff Lake active duty personnel, and participate in programs that provide important quality of life items to our overseas troops. We Help support the wounded warriors program
* We help support the Town Food Bank and other local & worthy causes
* We visit the Veterans Home in Paramus, and The Garfield Halfway House for Homeless Veterans and coordinate recreational activities and donate much-needed items to the residents.
* We sponsor local students at Boys State and Girls State, a week long program where participants gain firsthand knowledge of our state and federal government.
We conduct public services for Veterans Day and Memorial Day, and supervise proper flag disposal ceremonies. We provide Blue Star Banners to families of Hillsdale, Old Tappan and Woodcliff Lake active duty service members.
* We conduct Veterans day education in all our local schools.
* We sponsor Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts and regularly conduct school programs on topics such as flag etiquette and the Pledge of Allegiance.
We do our best to support those who protected our freedoms and those who continue to do so around the world. We receive no local, state or federal funding. Your donation will help us to continue to serve those who have served us. Your donation may also be tax deductible
