“Honor America’s Veterans-Become a Volunteer”

When you become a volunteer, you can make a difference, to our Veterans, to your community and to your own well-being.

Did you know that volunteering is good for your health? Studies have shown that people who volunteer feel better - physically, mentally and emotionally. In many cases, volunteering can encourage people to become informed about their own health and take care of themselves.

We have five VA facilities- Edward Hines Jr., Iliana, Jesse Brown, Cptn James A. Lowell, Marion and four Veterans Homes-Anna, LaSalle, Manteno, Quincy in Illinois and three out of state VA facilities-William S. Middleton in Madison, Wisconsin and Jefferson Barracks and John Cochran in St. Louis, Missouri.

To become a volunteer today, please contact your closest facility or representative in your area. More information can be found Department of Illinois VFW Auxiliary website,
The Hospital Chairman, Mercie Woolfolk is also at your service.
