Veterans associations seeks donations

By John Bickerstaff
PAVA Committee Spokesperson

As you know, the Piedmont Area Veterans Association (PAVA) is in the process of constructing a building on Edmond Road in Piedmont.

The goal for this building is to have a place to honor the selfless service of our nation’s service members of the United States Armed Forces through preservation, celebration and education.

This organization has made giant strides to keep the project moving forward.

All of the required state and federal documents for the incorporation and by-laws have been completed and we have applied for the IRS 501(c) (19) not-for-profit veterans’ organization.

The deeds for the donated property have been filed and completed. Construction permits have been obtained, building materials are on site and construction is underway. Much of the materials will be donated, as well as the labor efforts.

Thanks to our generous supporters, we have raised over $30,000. This has allowed us to proceed with the construction of the PAVA building. However, further donations are needed in order for us to continue forward. We realize economic times are tough and many people and other organizations are seeking your support as well. Your donation toward this building would help to honor and remember our veterans.
