Legion Donates To Avalon, SH Fire Departments

Posted July 25th 2022

The American Legion Post 331 gathered in July to present donation checks of $1,000 each to the Avalon and Stone Harbor Volunteer Fire Departments.

The two donations were part of the Legion’s goal to donate $50,000 to local organizations by the completion of 2022. Major contributions have also been made to various organizations including the Vineland Veterans Home ($15,000), the Citizens Veterans Advisory Committee ($8,000), the Middle Township Naval Defense Cadet Corps ($5,000), Cape Regional Medical Center ($3,000), Veterans Haven South ($2,000), and Guitars for Vets ($1,000).

Post 331 has been supporting these local organizations throughout the years, providing funds for education, major renovations and improvements, and veteran assistance including transportation, temporary financial support, housing, and more.

“This is a fine example of veterans still serving the nation, the state, and the communities that they live in,” said Legion Commander Tom McCullough. “We are proud to support the four pillars of the American Legion, and giving back to the community and endeavors such as this is our goal.”

The Stephen C. Ludlam Post 331 was chartered in 1946 and has been welcoming veterans from all branches of the armed forces since it was established. Go to for more information.
