About the VAVS Program

Each year, over 75,000 volunteers give more than 11 million hours in service to America's Veterans. It is impossible to calculate the amount of caring and sharing that these VAVS volunteers provide to Veteran patients. VAVS volunteers are a priceless asset to the Nation's Veterans and to the Department of Veterans Affairs. Founded in 1946 to provide for our nation's Veterans while they are cared for by VA health care facilities. One of the largest centralized volunteer program in the Federal government. More than 7,400 national and community organizations support the program. Volunteers have provided over 760 million hours of service since 1946.

Marine Corps League Members have proudly given countless hours of volunteer service to our Nation's Veterans through attending funeral services, providing Honor Guards, chauffeuring veterans in need of transportation, visiting veterans at nursing homes or while they are being cared for at VA health care facilities, planning and coordinating events (i.e. Bingo, games, reading etc.) and/or soliciting donations of funds or items needed by our hospitalized veterans, such as books/magazines, clothing, toiletry items etc, just to name a few.
