Richmond VA Medical Center depends on the goodwill of our benefactors and volunteers who wish to give something back to America's Heroes. Volunteers provide many important functions throughout the medical center and help ensure our patients stay is an enjoyable experience.                           

If you are interested in providing your time and talents to our facility through volunteerism, please call the our office at to schedule your interview. 

If your company has not experienced the rewards of a company-sponsored volunteer program, let the Department of Veterans Affairs help you get started today.  Your employees have the skills and talents that VA needs to carry out its mission to “serve those who have served.”  This can be your chance to give something back to the community while helping America’s Veterans.

CDCE staff will make it easy.  We will:

  • tailor a program for your company;
  • design volunteer opportunities for individuals and groups;
  • utilize the employee’s existing skills in rewarding ways;
  • help your employees learn new skills.

*Please note that requests for court issued community service are prohibited.
