Below are some projects our Post is currently supporting financially and are passionate about completing.
Feel free to check them out for more information.
Leadership Frisco Class 24 has partnered with our Frisco Veterans and patriots to help revitalize the Veterans Memorial located at Frisco Commons for their class project. The Frisco Veterans Memorial (FVM) was originally dedicated in 2004. In 2014 it was enhanced to include a Walk of Honor with dedicated veteran bricks, the Wall of Honor naming 11 young men from Frisco who were killed in action as well as brick columns with plaques describing significant wars.
As an expression of gratitude and to further honor our Veterans, multiple organizations, including the Frisco VFW & individuals have joined together to refresh the FVM and make necessary repairs.
The goal of Leadership Frisco Class 24 is to make the space a more interactive, destination for all locals and visitors to Frisco, TX.
Please consider donating to this worthy project!
A new Gold Star Families Memorial Monument (GSFMM) honoring the families of servicemen and women who sacrificed their lives while serving in the military is currently being planned in Frisco, Texas.
Frisco VFW Post 8273 learned that Leadership Prep School’s athletic department needed a school bus. As a charter school they do not receive the same funding or resources as schools within the Frisco Independent School District. The Frisco VFW leapt into action and found a bus! The Post raised the money to fix all mechanical issues with the bus as well as give it new tires, brakes, seats and additional upgrades. But the Post didn’t stop there, the Frisco VFW partnered with a local business and gave the bus a full custom wrap! In January 2020, the Frisco VFW Post handed over the keys and title of a custom wrapped school bus to Leadership Prep School.
The Flag Retirement Facility, as well as collection bins at four Frisco Fire Stations, was a project of Eagle Scout Matthew Miller, Boy Scout Troop 77, Frisco that VFW Post 8273 was proud to support. The site provides a place for American flags to be respectfully retired in a ceremony.
Towards the end of 2020, the Frisco VFW and its Auxiliary took on a HUGE task and assembled 100,000 buddy poppies in 30 days in support of the Nationwide Buddy Poppy Shortage! We took the lead and solicited local community allies to complete the mission. As a result, National VFW Headquarters in Kansas City received its 100,000 completed poppies from Frisco VFW to keep supporting the mission.
