We love our volunteers.
Check this page frequently to find out where volunteers are needed and what kind of tasks need to be accomplished. The information here will inform you of upcoming events and every day opportunities where volunteer help is needed. At the bottom of the page is a Volunteer signup/registration document that can be opened, viewed, printed, or downloaded to your computer. Fill out the volunteer form and mail it to VHVHQ, 1215 Pacific Blvd, Albany, OR 97321 or bring in to the Vets Helping Vets HQ Bunker at the American Legion Post 10. You can also call the Bunker at 541-791-4357 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for information concerning volunteer opportunities.
Office Assistants Needed
Help out by answering phone calls coming into the office and taking messages and insuring messages are received by the appropriate VHVHQ staff member. Learn how to do an intake of a veteran or a veterans family member who is seeking assistance from Vets Helping Vets HQ to help gather information needed from the veteran and schedule an appointment for the veteran to see an advocate.
The Bunker at the American Legion is open Monday thru Thursday, 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. Call us at 541-791-4357 if you can commit some time as a office volunteer and help out.
Become a Veterans Advocate
If you are interested in volunteering to become advocate for veterans, you've come to the right place. VHVHQ holds training classes to educate advocates on how to determine claim eligibility and to prepare fully developed claims for veterans who wish to file claims with the VA for compensation. To sign up and find out when the next set of classes will start contact Pat Bailey or Bernie Pasqualini at Vets Helping Vet HQ, email@example.com, or call 541-791-43457.
Volunteer Information Database
VHVHQ is looking for a volunteer that can create a MS Access database from our old volunteers forms. To go through the forms and make contact with people to update their information and to see if they still want to be registered volunteers. The database will need names, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, skills, and availability.
Yard Work, Furniture Moving, Home Repairs
Occasionally we have disabled veterans that need help with lawn care or repairs to their place of dwelling. When furniture or equipment is donated we need some muscle power to help us pick it up and put it into storage until the items are needed. If you can do any of these things on a part time basis please fill out a Volunteer Registration Form or contact the Bunker by email or phone.
2017 Sponsor List
Vets Helping Vets HQ needs someone who is familiar with MS Word to make a list of all VHVHQ sponsors for the year of 2017 which will include the name, address, phone number and website if applicable and the rating of each sponsor. Platinum, Gold, Silver, or Bronze so that this information can be added to the website by the web developer. Call the Bunker at 541-791-4357 and talk to Pat Bailey or call Derral Hunt at 541-409-3417. Thanks!
