ORVILLE MCCLAUGHLIN CANCER FUND AND

VFW TRUST FUND


​​​The Orville McLaughlin Cancer Fund is set up to help cancer victims, veterans, and non-veterans.  We like to help cancer victims while they are alive and getting treatment.

The information needed in letter format is as follows:

 Person’s name, address, social security number, and history of the person’s cancer (type. Condition, etc.)

A ND VFW Post Commander or Senior Elected Officer or an Officer of the VFW, Dept. of ND, must endorse and countersign the letter.

Mail this information to:
Steve Volk
Orville McLaughlin Cancer Fund

Mandan, ND 58554-6322 or email:  savolk@bis.midco.net

THE VFW has a Trust Fund for the needy or victims with a health condition other than cancer.  The VFW Trust Fund Committee meets at the same time as the Orville McLaughlin Cancer Fund Committee.  They require the same information as indicated for a cancer fund request.

Mail this information to:

Wally Bolte, VFW Trust Fund
4605 E Roundup Road
Bismarck, ND 58501

The committees meet 2 times a year:  Mid-Winter Conference and State Convention-Grand Cootie Scratch.  The committees also handle special requests outside these time periods.  The committees do conference calls to consider approvals in between meeting twice a year.
