Inglewood veteran and community organizer Star Manning and VFW Post 2122 Commander Gerry Blake recognizes that service members, veterans, and their families’ budgets are strained and may have a hard time buying a Christmas Tree and presents this year. The Pull-Up tree giveaway is one way to show appreciation for military families and their sacrifices made year-round.

“Inglewood Veterans need to know that they have a post that is here for them and their families,” said Manning. “No pandemic will stop us from serving veterans and our community.” VFW Post 2122 is a small non-profit organization dedicated to assisting Inglewood’s veterans. It provides emergency assistance to those who have served in – or are still serving in – the finest military in the world according to its Facebook page.

“Our post serves the Inglewood veteran’s community daily, not just for holidays. As a community, we must always remember those that have made the greatest sacrifice.” said Blake.
