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.
