Did you know?

You may have heard that the “Labels for Education” program is ending. It is true, but it is not too late to help the VFW National Home earn enough to get their 7th van through the program! Please see the notice below and keep clipping!

The VFW National Home for Children has until July 11 to collect the last 107,683 Campbell’s Labels for Education® UPC’s needed to earn their seventh (yes, seventh!) minivan. In order to earn their last minivan, they must turn in a total of 1.6 million UPC points by July 31, 2016. The long-running Campbell’s Labels for Education® program ends this summer, so UPC’s must be received at the National Home by July 11, 2016.

The families at the National Home know they can count on VFW Auxiliary members to help them reach their goal! Keep clipping and sending your Labels for Education to:

VFW National Home for Children 3573 S. Waverly Road Eaton Rapids, MI 48827
