Don Diego VFW Needs A New Roof. Can You Help?

My father was a Veteran of two wars, so I’m aware of the importance of having a “place to call your own”. Don Diego VFW Post 7420 is one of those places for Veterans but they desperately need a new roof.

When I first heard about Don Diego looking for donations to replace it’s old roof, I wanted to donate but also wanted to help them fundraise. I urged Miguel Alatorre, post commander of Don Diego to set up a GoFundMe account so that people in the community can help donate. Now that it’s been set up, I’m now looking for roof companies and/or roofers that can donate material and/or labor. These veterans have been fundraising for some time now and have raised $12,000 so far but there is an urgency with the future forecast of El Niño on the horizon.

If you would like to donate material and/or labor please email me and I will help connect you. To donate on their GoFundMe Account click here.

Here is a little history about VFW Don Diego Post 7420:

This place has been a fixture in the Logan Heights community for many years. The original Charter members were all of Mexican-American descent. They decided to come together and form a place of brotherhood. A place where they would be accepted and welcomed regardless of one’s race or color. After World War II, a lot of combat veterans were not allowed into certain VFWs because they were not white. This did not stop them from coming together and forming. On April 14, 1955 Don Diego VFW Post 7420 came into existence and is still considered to be San Diego’s friendliest posts. There are over 60yrs of history in this VFW post and with your help and support many more years still to be written.
