COMMUNITY SUPPORT

The Gahanna Post of the American Legion was founded in 2002, with Gahanna veterans of various military backgrounds coming together to form a unit that started  with 26 veterans.  Since then, we have grown to a present 430 members, having been joined by veterans from other communities, who, having a dedication to serving their country and community, have put their efforts towards serving the community of Gahanna by providing High School students the opprtunity to play American Legion Baseball, to participate in the Oratorical Contests conducted annually, to attend the Buckeye Boys & Girls State Programs conducted annually, and to take the Americanism & Govenment Tests provided by the state to see if our school programs are teaching them what they need to know about our government.

The Gahanna Post has participated in countless events within the community, helping out wherever and whenever they have the opportunity, and the Post Honor Guard has provided it's support for veterans services throughout the entire Central Ohio area.  All these things have been carried out by an organization having no home base.  The Gahanna Post has met for 8 years at the leisure of VFW Post 4719, to whom we owe our endless gratitude.

NOW, we have a better way for businesses to work with us and to profit in the process.  Please read the article about ORMITA, a company that will work with businesses to help non-profits and themselves at the same time.  This can be a win-win process for all who join in with us and with ORMITA.

Anyone in the community can help our mission by donating to the Post.  You can designate which area your money is used simply by stating that on the donation form at Paypal.  All you need to do is click on the word DONATE, and you will be taken to the Paypal link where you can indicate your amount and designation.  Paypal will electronically send you a receipt of your donation.  REMEMBER!!  You do not need a Paypal account to use Paypal, merely a checking account, credit card, or another online account from which to transfer your donation.  Thank you for your support of the Gahanna American Legion.
