All of the proceeds from the ticket sales and auction items will go towards a $1 million capital campaign for the development of a full-scale facility at the American Legion’s existing site at 308 Second Street.  The new facility will provide an enhanced level of operations and vital resources to veterans in the local community.  The initiative to build housing for homeless veterans and support services is the first of its kind in the United States by an American Legion post.

Hoboken’s American Legion Post has received Federal and County funds for the repair and reconstruction of its damaged building into a community center and housing complex for homeless veterans.  The all-volunteer organization is now focusing on generating additional funds to complete its vision for a new and revitalized American Legion Post that fully serves the men and women who have proudly served in armed forces.  Included in this effort are furnishing the new center and homes and the creation and support of critical veteran programs.
