The American Legion Post 136 is a non-profit organization. The Post does not have any paid employees. Therefore, all donations received stay locally here in Mount Pleasant, SC at our post to help Local Veterians and Students in Local Schools and other Prpgrams such as 'Charleston Sea Cadets' .
We present these funds to organizations that support veterans who are in need. There are many other organizations the Legion supports that are not related to veterans and, as we grow, it is our intent to support them as well. The list of organizations that provide assistance to veterans is long and all are listed on the National American Legion website. The opinion of all officers of Post 136 is to keep donation funds in our local community whenever possible.
When our Post has sufficient membership size that we can have a permanent building, it is likely that we could have a canteen. Many larger post have paid employees but 100% of all wages come directly from the revenue generated from the sell of food and beverages in the canteen. They are also able to rent the facility out for events and we feel if we can ad a Educational room with computers for local Vets to use to search for jobs and health care and housing. We also want to create educational and mentoring events to be held at the future post building.Excess funds over and above operating expenses for the canteen are donated to the Post.
NOTE: We are the home of and Founder ( Bill Ferguson / Art Horn ) of 'Fishing For Vets' Mount Pleasant, SC. with its own apparel line sold in Palmetto State Armory Mount Pleasant,SC. .
