Pate Post 2033, Veterans of Foreign Wars and its Ladies Auxiliary. The money will assist the ladies in buying supplies for free pillows that are given at Houston's V.A. Hospital. Also present for the VFW Ladies Auxiliary were Priscilla Hale, Jo Ann Price and Elsie Stewart. Quartermaster/Adjutant James Hale also attended. The Club, which formed in 2006, has made over 2,000 abdominal pillows for veterans coming out of heart surgery and other procedures.

The pre-cutting of fabric and the down stuffing is donated by the ladies from United Methodist Church of Woodville.
