9th Annual Thanksgiving Bake Sale

On Friday November 21, 2014 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 presonal items that they often need in the hospital. These same Veterans also have needs such as reading glasses, undergarments, warm cloths, bus passes to visit other clinics, phone cards to call loved ones, toiletries and many other basic items. Last year the Bake Sales raised over $3,400.00. TDVA was instrumental in helping this year along with the Ladies of Alpha Kappa Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi, a lot of the work you see on that table is theirs, God Bless.

TDVA Donates Computers and Setup

On the 15 October 2014 the Texas Disabled Veteran Association (TDVA) completed work on setting up the Computer Lab for our state of the art Polytrama Recreation Rehabilitation Center at Audie L. Murphy VA hospital. The Polytrama Center provides integrated services to Veterans with Polytrama and Traumatic Brain Injuries. These five Computers that we hooked up are now Internet ready. Also TDVA provided a Computer that is hands free with Dragon Dictate for those Veterans with limited mobility and all of these systems are linked to a scanner printer that was also provided. Just our way of giving back to those that have given so much. I also have to mention those donors that are always by our side giving generously.
