Detachment of Massachusetts

he American Legion Family of Massachusetts, in conjunction with Boston Children’s Hospital, Baystate Children’s Hospital and UMass Memorial Children’s Medical Center  has formed a program called:

“Partnership for  Kids”

The “Partnership for Kids” program provides an opportunity for Posts, Units, Squadrons, Rider Chapters, Individuals or Private Business to support our local Children’s Hospitals and receive the recognition they deserve. Through the “Partnership for Kids” we have created the “American Legion Family Dream Maker” Award. A Dream Maker is a Post, Unit, Squadron, Rider Chapter, Individual or Private Business that contributes $250.00 or more to one of our Children’s Hospitals listed above. A mountable certificate will be issued to those who attain the “Dream Maker” status. However, donations of any amount are greatly appreciated. A $10.00 donation can give a Million Dollars’ worth of dreams to the Children in these hospitals.

Every year, Children’s Hospitals treat millions of children for every disease and injury imaginable. The American Legion Family in Massachusetts has contributed over $145,000.00 dollars to Children’s Hospitals here in Massachusetts to ensure that the best care is available whenever children need it. One hundred percent of the funds raised stay at the hospital you wish to contribute. This year at the 11th Annual American Legion Family “Partnership for Kids” Bowling Tournament the total raised was $7500.00. This tournament has raised over $82,000.00 for the Three Hospitals here in Massachusetts
