Cart Program, Helping Others

On August 9, 2017, TDVA provide free snacks and refreshments through our Goodwill Cart Program at 5 major Audie L Murphy VA Medical Center Clinics to 96 Veteran Outpatients waiting for their scheduled appointments. This month’s volunteers were Sheila Brown from Connect + Ability and entity of the Warm Springs Foundation and Girl Scout Katelyn Latiolait. Goodwill Cart Program volunteers distribute bottled water, assorted candy, sugar-free candy, crackers, chips and good cheer! This monthly program has served 6,052 veterans to date.


The Ladies at Alpha Kappa Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi, donated much needed funds as well as the North Side Lions Charitable Foundation both of these organizations are a true blessing to our mission of helping those that need it most. These donations will go to fund our ongoing programs which I encourage you to read about by just scrolling down through this news section, a lot of truly wonderful things happen when good people get involved, God’s Speed.

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.

Xmas at the VA Spinal Cord Unit

Texas Disabled Veterans Association had its Christmas at the Spinal Cord Injury Unit in Audie L. Murphy Veterans Hospital on December 12, 2016. Giving away 112 presents to Patients and Staff. Christmas is the one time a year that we put so much into giving. Even greater is to effect the lives of so many more. Thanks to the donations of all those that give, we here at TDVA have been able to keep this tradition alive since 2009. It's just our way of saying thank you to those that give and have given so much.  Merry Christmas to all and May God Bless.
