Tech for Vets

Do you know or are you a local senior veteran in need of a mobile phone?


We have several mobile devices available to provide to our local senior veterans in need of a working or modern phone.

If you know a senior veteran (60 years or older) or if you are a senior veteran and an active American Legion member in Otsego or Delaware County, who could use one, let us know by completing the form on this page. 

These men and women left their homes to protect this country and the ideals we live by -- the least we can do is give them a reliable way to stay in touch. 


Do you know a vet who could use a phone?

Let us know! Fill out the form on this page so we know who they are and how to reach them.

Thank you so much for helping us to give back.


Help Us, Help Out

To support the American Legion Riders (Post 259) is to support the community.

Why do we ride? Well, besides our love of the open road and the freedom that riding brings, it allows us to contribute to a wide variety of charitable causes around our area.

While many of our events are held in support of our veterans and service members, we’ve also supported children’s hospitals, humane societies, and schools with the proceeds we raise. Furthermore, we help to draw attention to these needs by presenting a united front as we cruise down the road, applying our passion for riding to contribute to something even greater.

Will you help us serve our veterans and the people whom they have protected?

Anything you can give is more than appreciated. Thank you so much for your support.
