We at Cottage Grove VFW Post 8752 distribute the Buddy Poppy at various times throughout the year--and especially just prior to Memorial Day--to encourage remembrance of those who gave their lives in the defense of the United States.
Any free-will donations made by recipients of a Buddy Poppy are deposited in our Post Relief Fund where the funds are used solely to aid veterans in need and to support the VFW National Home for Children
