Annual November Bake Sale

Friday November 18, 2016 the Audie L. Murphy VAVS Committee hosted the VA Bake Sale at ALMVHS, 100% of the proceeds go directly to a fund that is set up to help Veterans with personal items that they often need while visiting the hospital. These same Veterans also have needs, such as reading glasses, undergarments, warm cloths, bus passes for their appointments, phone cards to call loved ones, toiletries and many other basic items we often take for granted. The baked items that the Ladies of Alpha Kappa Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi provide the hallmark that everyone looks for now with this event. Everything they do is personnel and done with a touch of love, God Bless to all involved.

New Wi-Fi Access, Day Room

TDVA had a busy month this November, we were finally able to provide hi speed internet access to the Day Room at the Spinal Cord Unit. This Area is private in nature and is a place for loved ones and patients to go and relax, watch TV, and play games. Paralyzed Veterans of America has a computer in this location and now they have Wi-Fi access.

Comfort Program Donation

TDVA Donated $1,000.00 to the Comfort Program today at San Antonio's Veterans Administrative Volunteer Services (VAVS). This program provides items that we so often take for granted. Some of the items are:  tooth brushes, tooth paste, dental floss and tote bags personal hygiene items, razors, shampoo, and body wash, also bus tickets for Homeless Veterans to get to and from their appointments. We at TDVA applaud all those involved in helping to make this happen. It’s our way of giving back to those that have given so much.
