Stars & Stripes Initiative
State law requires Flags in every school classroom but only if schools can afford them or have them donated. The goal of this initiative is to raise funds to purchase American Flags for Montana schools.
Billings' Legion Post 117 and the OPI are partnering to help schools acquire flags to both honor veterans and create strong civics education programs in schools.
If you want to donate to help purchase flags for Montana classrooms:
- You can donate money to Post 117's Paypal account.
- The flags are classroom sized at 16" x 24" and also have the staff and wall mount bracket for $10.
- If the full price of the flag is donated, that flag can be sent to the school of the donor's choosing.
