Give a veteran the gift of your time by becoming a volunteer at the VA Palo Alto Health Care System, 3801 Miranda Avenue, Palo Alto.
Volunteers are matched up with available positions according to their interests and skills. A variety of positions are available year-round such as a volunteer transportation person, which is where a volunteer helps veterans get to their medical appointments. Even students can volunteer! This would be a great way for students to hear first hand from veterans about what it was like to be in the military. Other volunteer opportunities are available. Inquire at the VA Medical Center for open positions.
Those interested in volunteering at the VA Medical Center need to fill out an application which can be downloaded from paloalto.va.gov/giving. All volunteers will also go through a background check and fingerprinting before being approved for a volunteer position. Call Voluntary Service at (650) 858-3903 for more information.
