Located on 629 acres in Eaton Rapids, Michigan, the VFW National Home for Children is a collection of housing, churches and recreational facilities designed to help families and children of veterans of foreign wars. Established in 1925, the Home was created to care for the developmental, social and spiritual needs of the children and families of these veterans. It’s history is rich and its traditions are the heart of the philosophy on which this country was founded.
To honor the VFW National Home for Children, General Motors will donate $100 for every Buick, Pontiac, and GMC sold from May 22 – 31 to the VFW Children’s Home. During the Memorial Day weekend, what better way can we give back to the soldiers who have and who still fight for our freedoms than to assist in supporting their families?
