Auxiliary Unit 16
Since 1922 the Disabled American Veterans Auxiliary (DAVA) has partnered with the DAV parent organization in their mission of service to disabled veterans and their families.
That relationship has continued to flourish and the blended organizations have achieved many victories in their quest to improve the quality of life our veterans rightly deserve.With nearly a quarter-million members, the DAVA programs are far-reaching and the personal rewards fulfilling.
Our members are diverse in their interests which is what has made the DAVA so successful. Our programs include Americanism, Community Service, Junior Activities, Legislative, and VA Voluntary Services. Foremost in our hearts is the goal of assuring benefit entitlement and compassion for our disabled veterans.
The Auxiliary is involved with several different programs and projects.
Some of them are:
- Making and delivering lap robes to the VMAC.
- Making bags that attach to wheel chairs and walkers.
- Bingo at the local VMAC.
- Scholarships awarded locally.
- Crafts at 10am on Tuesday at the Bingo Hall Green Room.
DAVA members are entitled to a Member Benefits Package, which gives access to a variety of important programs, products, and services. Also included with Auxiliary membership is a FREE subscription to DAV Magazine (only one issue is sent per household).
