From Your Post Service Officers:

A working agreement has been established with Inland Northwest Blood Center (INBC). Please donate blood and advise that the donation is to be credited to American Legion Post 143. The advantage to Post 143 members is a check, from INBC, for $15.00 per blood unit to any Post 143 member patient who has a transfusion. INBC checks are based on the availability of Post 143 units on inventory at INBC. The program applies to all members of the Legion, Auxiliary and SAL.

Post Services Officers have available crutches, electric wheel chairs and walkers. This equipment is to be loaned to Legion, Auxiliary and SAL on a first come first served basis. Please advise your Service Officers of any ailing member or member in need. We will respond as we can by providing assistance or guiding the needy person to the agency that can be of assistance. We also will visit any member who desires visitation.
