Volunteer or Donate

Lend a helping hand to our veterans -- be a volunteer!

For people thinking of volunteering in the summer season please apply early to be a volunteer. The summer months tend to be a peak time for people volunteering. It is possible that we may reach a point that we have to turn people away.

Let’s face it -- 120,000 is a lot of something, no matter what you’re counting.
When counting the number of hours volunteers gave to the Milwaukee VA Medical Center in 2015, that something is really something else.

If not for the more than 850 volunteers here at Milwaukee VA, we simply couldn't keep the VA running.

If you would like to give as little as an hour a week, or even 40 hours, chances are we have a need for you at the Milwaukee VA.

The Milwaukee VA always is constantly in need of donated items as well, and are grateful for the generosity of others who want to make sure our Veterans have what they need. If you'd like to make a donation, click here for a list of recommended items
