Maybe you would like to assist in registering veterans in at clinics or show them where to go in a VA hospital. Golf cart drivers are needed all the time to assist vets from outlying parking lots and structures. Maybe you would like to make a donation of time, goods or even money. There is something for everyone and your gift of self will make a difference.

Dr. Wang-Rodrigues discussed the current need for blood, both in the VA and the civilian world. The pandemic has struck again. Both rules and fear have kept many from donating. The VA is currently at a reserve of one day’s blood supply. They ask that, if you can, please become part of their Roll Up Your Sleeves VA blood drive. You can go to any blood draw facility and tell them you want to donate in the name of the VA Roll Up Your Sleeves blood drive and the VA will get credit. I learned a lot listening to her. You will also.
