Become a volunteer
White River Junction VA Healthcare System depends on the goodwill of donors and volunteers who want to give something back to America's heroes. Volunteers provide much-needed help throughout the health care system and make patients' experiences more enjoyable. Many different volunteer opportunities are available, and each volunteer's talents are closely matched with one of our assignments.
Volunteer at our health care facility
215 North Main Street, White River Junction, Vermont
By volunteering at a VA health care facility, you'll provide critical support to our nation's heroes.
Volunteer as a driver
Many sick and disabled Veterans lack transportation to and from VA medical facilities, and the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) operates a nationwide transportation network to meet this need. DAV and auxiliary volunteers drive Veterans to and from VA hospitals and clinics, helping people get the care they deserve.
White River Junction, Vermont Healthcare System, and the DAV work to provide transportation for Veterans to and from WRJ VAMC for scheduled medical appointments.
Currently, the DAV has approximately 20 vans serving the State of Vermont and four NH Counties that transport Veterans to and from White River Junction VAMC. Each month, approximately 400 Veterans receive DAV transportation.
Become a volunteer driver
To learn more about becoming a DAV driver, contact Jeff Snow, DAV Coordinator.
