The Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 7109 has been a fixture of Pearland’s veteran community for over 40 years. In addition to the VFW, the Post is also home to the American Legion and the Disabled American Veteran Charity, a nonprofit charity that provides a lifetime of support for veterans of all generations and their families.
This collective group of veterans:
Provides an Honor Guard during Veteran funerals
Transports disable veterans to medical appointments to and from the VA
Hosts annual fundraisers whose proceeds are given back to Veterans’ Charities
Partnered with the 100 Club of Pearland to raise funds for Fallen Pearland PD Officer, Endy Ekpanya
Participates as Color Guard for community events
Provides formal and informal counseling to combat veterans
To have this multitude of services available for veterans under one roof is extremely rare. Unfortunately, the roof they are housed under is in severe disrepair and is in need of replacement. The Pearland Chamber of Commerce’s Leadership Pearland Class is joining forces with community leaders and veterans to host Pearland Armed Forces Day to raise funds for this purpose on Saturday, May 20th at the VFW - 4202 W Walnut St.
