This year we had chosen the Tucson based Esparanza En Escalante program for homeless Veterans. This organization helps transition Veterans back into their communities. AVVA National is proud to announce that our members raised $11,016.00 for this organization! This is our biggest ever Project Friendship donation. Thanks goes out to all of the AVVA and VVA members who donated or who obtained donations. Click here, to see the letter sent to us by the Esparanza En Escalante program.



AVVA morns the passing of our National Vice-President, Cathy Keister. Cathy was dedicated to veterans and their families. She was especially passionate about the remodeling of the In-Memory Plaque. She was there for anyone who needed her. She was devoted to her family and her friends. Mostly. she worked very hard, to help AVVA move forward into the future, and to help with veterans' issues. Many of us loved her a lot and she will leave a huge hole in our hearts. To the best of my knowledge her family has requested that, in lieu of flowers etc., donations could be sent to the In-Memory Plaque Project. (Funded by the National Foundation for Veterans and Families)

Cathy - our friend, and our colleague, you will be missed more than words can express.

Cathy's biggest passion was the In-Memory Plaque. She took care of it every chance she had, and has been working with her team to get it fixed for 3 years. Because of her, we have made great progress with it.
