Support our Programs

Veterans of Foreign Wars Jayne-Lattin Post 2913 is a 501c19 non-for-profit veteran organization that supports veterans and the community in the Patchogue area. The purpose of the organization is to ensure that veterans are respected for their service, always receive their earned entitlements, and are recognized for the sacrifices they and their loved ones have made on behalf of this great country.

Our post also works hard to support the community of Patchogue. Besides being a place that people in the local community can rent for parties, weddings, and events. The post hosts a seniors club, a new church, blood drives, food pantries, gathering station for support items. We march in the annual parades in Patchogue, lay flags for departed comrades during Memorial Day, conduct Veterans in the Classroom, and started Coffee with a Veteran. We sponsor, support and participate in; Alive After Five on Main Street, Suffolk County Marathon, Wreaths Across America, Arts on Terry Street Arts Fair, and Veterans Day Activities in the Area. We support the SVA and its programs at St Josephs College, Suffolk County Community College and Stony Brook University. Partner with Country Foot Care for Shoes for Homeless Veterans.

As a non-for-profit entity the post depends on the dedication of the community and local government for support. Being that the post is an all volunteer organization all monies raised by the post go to service veterans and their families as well as veteran organization on Long Island and their programs that support veterans.
