TB Vets 70th Anniversary
May 4-10 is 70th Anniversary Week for TB Vets! For seventy years the mission of TB Vets has been to help British Columbians with respiratory illness lead healthy and productive lives.
After World War II, a group of returning veterans created the TB Vets Key Tag return program and subsequently the TB Vets Charitable Foundation. Veterans and people with disabilities manufactured key tags which were offered as a free community service. Over time as donations from the key tags increased, veterans reached further out into the community and began supporting programs for respiratory wellness.
TB Vets has raised more than $11 million to support respiratory wellness in BC, including over $1 million donated to the Victoria Hospitals Foundation. For more information on TB Vets and their 70th anniversary celebrations, visit http://www.tbvets.org.
