Over 500 people attended the event of music, fellowship, and food. Santa was there along with Lucky the Clown (Christopher Churb) making balloon animals for the kids and kids at heart. The Spurs Coyote visited with families, played with the band and posed for pictures. Everyone enjoyed tamale plates, salad, and drinks prepared by DITW kitchen volunteers headed by Troy Banik. Kiolbassa Sausage and tables of baked goods were on sale to help with costs associated with this event. Frozen turkeys, Christmas plants, and gift bags were handed out as door prizes. Music was provided by Meyers Anderson Band that played Country and Christmas favorites that put everyone in a holiday mood. This year TDVA donated monies to purchase gifts for children. Congratulations to Program Director Barbara Blair and the Door In The Wall volunteers for a successful event! Visit DITW at to view all our pictures from the event.

Spreading Christmas Cheer

On Saturday, November 26, 2011, several members of TDVA joined a group of volunteers to decorate the Audie L. Murphy VA Medical Center, Spinal Cord Injury Unit (SCI) for the Christmas holiday season. A Christmas tree was placed in the main lobby of the SCI Clinic and Christmas laurels were placed throughout the entire unit to spread Christmas cheer among the inpatients and outpatients. A big thank you to the 27 volunteers who gave their time to share Christmas spirit at the SCI unit.

4th Annual Disabled Community Festival


This last weekend we had our 4th Annual Disabled Community Festival, October 1, 2011. I truly believe great fun was had by all. It is the one time every year that we come together to raise funds for our noble cause. I want to give out a special thanks to Americus Diamond and The San Antonio Spurs which gave out great gifts, it is threw people like this as well as the others that gave, that make this organization what it is. We also had a number of Venders that came out and was able to educate the people on their products that could make the Disabled life a little better. I am attaching pictures of Fun, Friends and good BBQ.
