Without membership our service programs would not be possible. Membership equals volunteers and volunteers equal service. This it is important that all levels of AMVETS Ladies Auxiliary conduct a vigorous membership program to secure new members and maintain their renewals. Our membership program begins and ends with the Local Auxiliary and must be concentrated at that level.

Who we are

AMVETS Ladies Auxiliary is made up of dedicated women whose primary focus revolves around our relationship to an individual who has honorable served our country in military service. As Auxiliary volunteers, we are helping, caring and sharing for our community and for those who are serving and have served our country. We join together as an organization to promote, support, and assist our parent organization AMVETS in achieving this goal.

What we do

AMVETS Ladies Auxiliary’s most important program is membership for without members our service programs would not exist. Membership provides AMVETS Ladies Auxiliary the potential to be effective in legislation and the ability to be heard on issues that are important to Veterans and their families. We strive to gain positive recognition in the media to gain publicity for our programs. Working together gives us the opportunity to explore the financial resources needed to carry out our service programs and to develop new ones as the need arises. AMVETS Ladies Auxiliary sponsors in our community. Our Veterans and their families are our number one priority. Our VA Medical Centers provide the best of medical care to our Veterans while we provide the most dedicated volunteers who give our Veterans love and hope. Americanism is one of our most valuable assets for with it we would not be the most caring country in the world. We have many scholarship programs that assist our members, as well as our sons, daughters, and grandchildren. THAT IS WHAT WE DO.

*With school starting, it is time to start collecting your Hy-Vee receipts and Box Tops for Education. Receipts and Box tops may be turned into our chairperson Donna Fischer, or any Auxiliary officer. Both are wonderful programs benefitting our local schools.

*Our Auxiliary continues to volunteer at the Marshalltown VA Home on the first Friday of the month. We usually like to have 5-6 volunteers go to help in their craft room and with the Bingo party they have after lunch. If you would like to be a part of this rewarding day, please call Jean at 319-269-3371 to let her know if you would like to go.

*Please continue to support our Auxiliary Food nights. Because of your past support we are able to award scholarships, donate to our various State projects, and also help with our local Bremer Co. VA office and other local community events. Thank you!
