La Mirada, CA – Today, after attending Memorial Day events in Whittier and Pico Rivera, Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn stopped by VFW Post 9148 in La Mirada where she presented a $60,000 check from her office to the organization to help pay for building repairs.
“This is a great VFW post that does so much to support local veterans and their families,” said Supervisor Janice Hahn. “That is what they should be focused on, and I am more than happy to help them pay for the repairs they need to their building.”
Post 9148 is a large organization with 352 members and 264 auxiliary members. They currently have a monthly food bank, offer services to homeless veterans, and host PTSD support groups at their facility. Their building is in need of a new roof, upgrades to the kitchen, and a new refrigerator.
