Trinity County Veterans Wall of Honor Society is a Texas non-profit organization that helps Trinity County Veterans, active-duty personnel and their families.
The group has constructed wheelchair ramps for residences, provided and installed air conditioning/heating units, provided and installed hot water heaters, retrofitted bathroom facilities to accommodate the handicapped and elderly, repaired leaky roofs, and helped offset the fuel costs associated with travel to VA facilities for health issues and treatments.
These things are done solely through contributions of individuals and corporations. We conduct an annual fund-raising campaign consisting of a raffle and auction held the last Saturday of October.
For information, donate an auction or raffle item, to make a contribution, or to alert us to an area Veteran that may need assistance, contact Tom McCrory, President, at (936) 577-8689; Bill Reeves, Treasurer, at (936) 661-7107; or Randy Barclay, Secretary, at (936) 594-8141.
