Welcome!
To The American Legion Auxiliary, Department Of Delaware

We belong to the largest women’s patriotic service organization in the world. The women of the auxiliary have a family member(s) who honorably served or are serving in the U.S. Armed Forces. We are also privileged to have auxiliary members who honorably serve or have served in the U.S. Armed Forces.

Honoring these men and women and the belief in the founding principles of our organization; has bought women of diverse backgrounds together with the common purpose of serving veterans, active duty service members, promoting patriotism, and developing our youth.

We sponsor volunteer programs, focusing on service members, veterans, young people and the community.

What We Do?

We sponsor  volunteer programs, focusing on service members, veterans, young people and the community.

Serve veterans at home, in hospitals, and in shelters:

  • The Auxiliary volunteers and donates to the VA Medical; we provide diversion and entertainment for patients and assist the hospital staff.
  • Assist transitional housing programs, collecte and provide food, clothing, gift cards, household supplies, deliver holiday cheer to the residents.
  • Delaware Auxiliary members join other organizations in the annual Veterans Stand Down which brings homeless veterans to a central location where a multitude of services and supplies are provided.

Serve active-duty service members and their families

  • Troop Packing Programs: supplies are purchased, packed, and mailed to troops serving around the world.
  • Members partner with local businesses, the national guard, high school students, and JRTOC cadets to collect, prepare and provide holiday events for service members and their families.
  • Present Blue Star banner to families with a loved one serving in the Armed Forces.  The banner is displayed in the window of their home as a reminder to every neighbor.

Are legislative advocates for veterans and active-duty military families

  • Auxiliary members encourage law makers at all levels to protect the rights of veterans, service members and their families and to provide for their needs.  The Auxiliary supports the legislative priorities established by The American Legion.

Promote patriotism and respect for the flag

  • Members participate in patriotic celebrations, educate the public on flag etiquette and sponsor youth programs. To help Delaware youth learn firsthand about our democracy, the Auxiliary sponsors Girls State Girls Nation and the Americanism Essay Contest

We invite you to learn more and join thousands of Delaware Auxiliary members in making a difference. Contact us with questions about our programs, membership or volunteering!
