Are you passionate about serving veterans? Put that passion into action. Here are a few ways to get started.
|Get involved with the United Service Organizations Inc. The USO has hundreds of locations across the world, with many different possibilities to serve, from short-term to long-term commitments. Connect with your local USO.|
|Become a volunteer at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Each year thousands of veterans pass through VA facilities on their way to recovery. Show them you care by contributing your time to your local VA.|
|Donate to the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America to help recently returned veterans connect with each other, serve their communities, and access the resources they need to have a healthy transition. Donate to the IAVA today.|
|Help homeless veterans. Drop of supplies at a local veterans transitional center or homeless shelter. Cook a meal. Teach a class. Spend time with residents. Veterans who are homeless deserve a hand up from their community to help them get back on their feet.|
|Join the Elks! Contact your local Elks Lodge about becoming a member and share in the Elks' work to serve veterans. Get your membership application started today.|
