Lake Orion VFW members aid in VFW National Home for Children of Michigan fun run

Lake Orion members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) headed to Eaton Rapids, MI on Aug. 4 for the 3rd annual .1K Fun Run.

Though it is a short race, it often yields impressive results. This year, the VFW was able to donate $13,100 to the National Home for Children, said Lake Orion resident Chuck Haskin.

The VFW National Home for Children was founded in 1925 as a place for families of veterans and active-duty military personnel. Through this program families were able to stay together during and after the war, even if their serviceman/woman did not return home.

Over the years, the National Home for Children has expanded and changed to fit the needs of its residents many residents.
