Hospital & Veterans Affairs Voluntary Services
Volunteering in hospitals around the country
Hospital & VAVS Program
The goal of the Hospital & VAVS program is to meet the needs of hospitalized patients in VA Medical Centers and other hospitals throughout this country.
In 1928 Volunteer Hospital work became the second National Program
adopted by the Ladies Auxiliary VFW. As America's troops return from
battle and aging warriors need medical attention, the Ladies Auxiliary
has been there to assist with a cheerful smile, an encouraging word,
and time to write or read a letter from loved ones.
The organization volunteers 1.8 million hours a year.
