Hampton American Legion volunteers continue work at VA as group gets OK to build anew

For 15 years, Magahay and her husband have been meeting weekly at the Hampton VA to run the Poppy Program, which started back up in April after its pandemic hiatus. The money raised from distributing the poppies to the public, via posts, other units, churches, can rake in some $300,000 annually, Magahay said. Those funds go back to the main offices of the American Legion Auxiliary in Richmond or to other state affiliated offices and are used for the veterans, active duty and their families.
