Veteran's Committee Supports VFW National Home
The Veterans Association of UAW Region 1- C would like to introduce you to The VFW National Home for Children which serve as a living memorial to America’s Veterans by helping our nation’s Veteran and military families.
Since its founding in 1925, the VFW National Home for Children has grown from an old frame farm house to a sprawling 70 acre campus village with playgrounds, park areas, and multiple buildings, including single-family homes (named after the American States, Individuals and Military Branches of Service), a community center and gymnasium, child care center, guest
lodge, chapel and administrative offices in Eaton Rapids, Michigan.
The National Home’s services have also evolved to meet the changing needs of America’s military and veterans’ families. Through our Help line and our on-campus programs, we are able to help families and children through times of crisis, both here on our beautiful campus and in their own communities nationwide.
This National Home for Children of Military and Veteran Families have a wish list, and our Veterans Association of UAW Region 1-C invite you to partner with us in helping make these wishes come true for these children and their families.
By visiting this Amazon page - (CLICK HERE), it includes many items that the nursery can use. If you purchase these items somewhere other than Amazon, please go back to the VFW's list and click the "Buying this gift elsewhere?" link next to the item you purchased and follow the instructions to reserve the item. This will help ensure VFW does not get duplicate gifts. If you purchase an item locally, you can drop off the item(s) at the UAW 652 Union Hall or contact UAW Local 652 Veteran’s Committee Chair Mike Melfi to arrange pick up.
Thank you in advance for your consideration and generosity.

The GimmeFive program was launched at the 35th UAW Convention in June 2010 by President Bob King, the newly elected International Officers and Regional Directors, and the UAW Local Union Delegates. GimmeFive recruits and engages members in a new and innovative mobilizing program to Organize, Build Power and Win Justice for our union and community. TOGETHER WE WIN!
Each time you complete a task you will be rewarded for your hard work with a new button. The goal is to collect all five buttons…the official GimmeFive, Power, Organize, Mobilize and Justice buttons. Each UAW Region will compete for the highest level of GimmeFive activism and will be acknowledged for their hard work at the Community Action Program (CAP) Conference in January 2011.
To participate in GimmeFive, first you need to sign up for the program. See UAW Local 652 President Mike Green or Vice-President Randy Freeman at the Local 652 Union Hall and they will help sign you up. Once you are signed up for GimmeFive you will receive a confirmation with information to track your activities and when to expect your official GimmeFive button.
