During GivingTuesday, Nov. 29, the Chillicothe VA Medical Center encourages the community to help support local veterans through charitable donations or volunteer opportunities.

Individuals and organizations may donate to their local VA medical center by making an E-Donation through www.volunteer.va.gov.

“The holidays can be especially tough for certain vulnerable veteran populations in our community,” said Dr. Robert Taylor, acting Medical Center Director of the Chillicothe VAMC. “Our community’s support during this time of the year can go a long way for those who volunteered their service in defense of our great country.”

Opportunities are also available by donating time — such as becoming a virtual volunteer, driving veterans to their appointments or volunteering in a role at your local VA.

Learn more about donating or becoming a volunteer, please contact the Chillicothe VA CDCE (Voluntary Services) office at (740) 773-1141 ext. 17421.
