Albany - - This Memorial Day Weekend, some war veterans are giving of their time to assist others who have served our country.

All weekend, the Veterans of Foreign Wars are setting up outside of Winn Dixie and Sam's Club in Lee County and the Walmart in Albany for their annual fundraiser.

They're giving away buddy poppies to people who donate money.

The money is used to help disabled vets and provide care to vets that are hospitalized.

"It makes us feel good. They really appreciate us. They donate for the veterans and they also thank us for the job that we're doing," says Billy Stewart a vet himself.

The fundraiser will wrap up on Memorial Day. If you'd like to donate, you can visit the stores tomorrow between 9 am and 6 pm.
