VFW Post 4174: VFW Auxiliary MALTA | News, Sports, Jobs
When I first heard the term MALTA in connection with the VFW Auxiliary, I wondered if it was some type of drink they had invented and was curious enough to try it. I quickly learned that it wasn’t a drink at all, but the initials for Membership Auxiliary Leadership Technology Access. Believe it or not, I still couldn’t figure out the purpose, so I turned to my familiar computer and checked.
MALTA is a program that offers several excellent options to support qualified veterans, service members, their families, and relatives of VFW and service members. Cancer Aid and Research funds members fighting the disease and supports grants of up to $ 550 – with two per life per member. Members should have a good reputation and have at least a one-year membership with MALTA.
The share of health and happiness that goes to the VFW National Home for Children supports the qualified members in their search for a new start with rent-free living space, childcare and more. There’s also a Patriotic Art Scholarship Contest, which is an exciting endeavor for aspiring artists in grades 9-12 that they can participate in while promoting patriotism among teenagers. Two- and three-dimensional works are accepted. It’s a great scholarship opportunity as the deadline is March 31, 2022 for submitting to the local VFW relief agency. Submissions must be received by the Ministry (State) on April 15, and submissions must be submitted to National Headquarters on May 5.
Another special option is the Continuing Education Scholarship Contest, which awards $ 1,000 to help students achieve and achieve their career dreams. Members of the VFW and Auxiliary can make financial donations in MALTA to help the ongoing projects to achieve the new goal of receiving further scholarships.
To learn more about the Patriotic Art Contest, Continuing Education, and Fund the Future, go online at vfwauxiliary.org/resources. Participation in this worthy project will help the Auxiliary achieve success in the Soaring Above and Beyond programs that the organization is sponsoring for this year.
Each member is encouraged to help the VFW by becoming an unstoppable force supporting veterans and service members. In this way we all fulfill our mission and thank all veterans for their service.
