The American Legion was chartered and incorporated by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization devoted to mutual helpfulness. It is the nation’s largest wartime veterans service organization, committed to mentoring youth and sponsorship of wholesome programs in our communities, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting strong national security, and continued devotion to our fellow servicemembers and veterans.

What We Do


  • Each year on Veterans Day, Memorial Day, and at every meeting we honor those who fought for our nation, including the POWs/MIAs who remain unaccounted for today.

Community Service

  • Our community is full of veterans and military families in need. As a result, we donate to and work with local installments and programs that support our military.

Annual Food Drive

  • We help support both veterans and active military in our community to raise money by selling food during hours of operation and other special events to give back to those to those who fought valiantly for our great country.

Memorial Maintenance

  • We maintain the Memorial landscaping on the East side of Afton Avenue by the Yardley Inn.
  • We support, assist and attend other Legion, Legion Auxiliary and Riders events when they are held.  (Legion family events) Example: We just received a Thank you note for support of the Auxiliary “2021 Veterans Giving Tree” program.  We help the Auxiliary with their Annual Flea Market that has grown into a successful event.  (set-up and food sales)  
  • We assisted with the funding of the newer bar stools a few years ago and financially support any other improvements needed at the Post including equipment, fixtures, etc.

Helping Veterans

  • We all help veterans 365 days a year, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
  • The SAL donates as needed to support our veterans in any way that we can financially or otherwise.
  • Giving Tree for veterans in six local area nursing homes (Attleboro Nursing & Rehab Center, Manor Care Health, Langhorne Gardens Rehab & Nursing Center, Silver Lake, Center, Statesman, Health & Rehab Center and Woodbourne Place)
  • Donations to Delaware Valley Veterans Home in Philadelphia
  • Donations to Department for activities at Delaware Valley Veterans Home

Donations to other American Legions

  • In 2021 we donated to the Lambertville American Legion that was significantly damaged by Hurricane Ida.
