DVDs4Vets asks for donations

Company offers DVDs to veteran hospitals

The nonprofit org DVDs4Vets is in the midst of a Veterans Day drive to encourage showbiz companies and others to donate DVDs for distribution to medical facilities around the country devoted to the care of veterans.

Org’s goal is to send new and used DVDs to veterans hospitals and care facilities around the country. The effort to date has yielded donations of 1,000 DVDs from Warner Bros. and another 1,000 from Time Warner Cable, as well as 500 discs from HBO. Other majors who have contributed to the DVDs4Vets cause include Sony and Disney.

The Harrison, N.Y.-based nonprofit was founded in 2006 by a doctor in Westport, Conn., Richard Landis, in an effort to aid the large number of vets wounded in Iraq or Afghanistan who face long recuperation periods in Veterans Administration hospitals and treatment centers.
