ABOUT US

OUR MISSION

TC Charity, Inc. is a veteran founded and operated non-profit 501 (c)3 organization that originated in Phoenix Arizona. Our organization has a mission to provide improved mobility to disabled veterans, children, and first responders. We have discovered on this journey that our veterans are in need of training and education once being released back into the civilian world. Approximately 722,000 veterans were unemployed in 2013 and an average of 22 veterans a day took their own life by suicide. We have included in our mission, a goal to build a veteran centric training facility where disabled veterans can attend and learn a skill or trade that will aid them in finding employment in civilian life. We propose that the facility hire veterans to train and teach at this facility as they have experienced the military life for themselves and can provide insight and support. Mongo chairs will be assembled in the training facility initially, until adequate funds can be raised to purchase machines and equipment necessary to manufacture the Mongo chairs in house.

TC CHARITY has the absolute honor of providing improved mobility to disabled veterans, children and first responders.

Investigator and Army Veteran William “Bill” Weigt of the Peoria Police Department in Arizona was among one of the first recipients of a chair via TC Charity. Bill consistently goes above and beyond for his peers and his community. He is a man that donates his time and his resources to help anyone who needs him. From donating hours of his time working phone lines when a fellow officer or fire fighter has fallen to buying school supplies or paying sports fees for a kid in need. Despite having limited mobility, Bill always rises to the occasion.

He first became disabled on December 17, 2005, approximately 18 months after joining the police department when he was shot in the line of duty; a day that changed his life forever. Though he can no longer walk, Bill has since rejoined his comrades at the Peoria Police Department as an Investigator. Because of his strength and resilience as well as his selfless nature, Tankchair LLC gifted Bill a “Cop Chair” equipped with sirens and a blow horn as well as flashing lights. Sleek and fast that would improve his mobility as well as give people something to look at and talk about other than his disability. He has become a voice for Tankchair LLC and TC Charity and has been able to use his chair for several events and fundraisers both for the Tankchair LLC as well as for non-profit organizations. Bill is also heavily involved with another organization called The 100 Club of Arizona which is also doing great work.

 

wwii-veteranMeet Robert J Alberty, former Sergeant in the United States Army. A man who lost his father at the age of 9 and along with his older brother became the Breadwinners for the family. At the age of 10 he was helping to support the family by picking cotton in the river bottom which is now Lake Hudson. At the age of 20 he was drafted into the United States Army. December 26th 1942 was the start of a long four years. He was assigned to the 714th Tank Battalion, 12th Armored Division, which became known as “The Mystery Division”. The name given to them when all insignia was ordered to be taken off of uniforms, all Motor Vehicles be painted over so no one would know who they were. First battle was October 1943. He was a foot soldier, 81 Mortar Platoon, and Gunner on a Half-track. He was in attendance for General Patton’s address to the THIRD ARMY June 5th 1944 and remembers it beginning as follows “Be seated. You are here today for three reasons. First, you are here to defend your homes and loved ones. Second, you are here for your own self-respect, because you would not want to be anywhere else. Third, you are here because you are real men. When you, there, every one of you were kids, you all admired the champion marble player, the fastest runner, the toughest boxer, the big league ball players and the All American football players. Americans love a winner. Americans will not tolerate a loser. Americans despise cowards. Americans play to win all the time. I wouldn’t care for a man who lost and laughed. You are not all going to die. Only 2% of you right here today would die in a major battle. Death must not be feared. Death, in time comes to all men.”

wwii-veteranApril 26th 1945 they captured the bridge at Dillingen on the Rhine River before the Germans could blow it up. They succeeded on April 27th and tanks and infantry went barreling down a two-lane road in Dillingen and poured over the bridge across the Danube. The Danube River had never before in recorded history been crossed in force by an invader. Raiders and armies tried for hundreds of years but none were able to cross in force until the 12th Armored Division did that which could not be done. What happened in the next 5 days was a discovery that would infuriate not only the GI’s that were fighting, but the entire world. They discovered and liberated 11 death camps around Landsberg, Germany. The Nazis under Hitler’s Direction exterminated millions of Jewish and Polish people and anyone who didn’t agree that they were the master race. The torture that that he put upon the people will never be forgotten by the World War II veterans. When they got the news that the war had ended on May 8th, 1945, they were in Austria preparing to cut the Germans off from going to Italy. With the war being over he was sent to Belington Germany where he remained on Army Occupations. He returned to the states December 1945 to Fort Chaffee Arkansas where he was honorably discharged with a Freedom Ribbon, Good Conduct metal, American Company Ribbon, European-African-Middle Eastern campaign medal and three Battle Stars. The 12th Armored Division ended up with 2647 wounded, 427 captured, and a loss of 814 Brothers.
