Stamps for the Wounded

The Lions of District 24-L collect canceled postage stamps for a very important cause, "Stamps for the Wounded." Stamps for the Wounded (SFTW) is a service of the Lions 50 International Stamp Club. SFTW is a 100% volunteer organization. It was founded in 1942 in response to an appeal from the Armed Services Hospitals.

While SFTW is not affiliated with the government, both the American Red Cross and the Department of Veterans' Affairs recognizes SFTW as an agency accredited to serve the philatelic needs of hospitalized servicemen and women.
