Buddy Poppy Drive

Since the early 1980’s, VFW Post 970 has held its Buddy Poppy Drives at Hickam AFB to commemorate patriotic dates. Today, VFW Post 970 has expanded its location to include the NEX.

VFW Post 970 Buddy Poppy Drive February 19-20, 2022. To commemorate Presidents Day at the Hickam BX and the NEX.

At the Hickam BX February 20, 2022

At the NEX February 20, 2022

The VFW Buddy Poppy program provides compensation to the disabled and needy veterans who assemble them. By law all donations collected from passing out Buddy Poppy must go to a relief fund that can only be used to support the military members and veterans in need, and to support youth and educational programs.

Our next Buddy Poppy Drive is May 28-29, 2022 for Memorial Day.
