The local veterans from Mount Olive, Netcong, and surrounding communities who call VFW Post 2347 home are in dire need of financial support. The veterans are aiming to raise $50,000 dollars through Go Fund Me. The page, www.gofundme.com/f/save-lakeland-vfw-post-2347-netcong-nj, is accepting donations to help renovate the second floor of the post for the veterans. If the post can raise the needed money, the renovations would start in the spring sometime.
“The VFW post is in need of rebuilding the supporting wall which will allow this historical building a future in the community. This post is the oldest in Morris County. With the repairs in place, the post can be used safely for the veterans. This is something that has been missing for them because of COVID and the needed repairs. They cannot use the second floor for events. The veterans are asking for our support with donations and with any support you can provide. No amount is too small as we look to start repairs in the spring,” the Go Fund Me page says.
