Chattanooga VA needs volunteers

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF) — The Chattanooga VA is looking for volunteers to help out their veterans.

Organizers say they need more than 50 people to volunteer at four different locations in Chattanooga, including the VA Outpatient Clinic. Some of the jobs include like greeting, helping in the office, and driving vans. Van drivers take the patients from Chattanooga to Murfreesboro daily.

In addition to regular volunteers, they also are looking for people to help out less frequently.

“We also have a need for occasional volunteers, those that do not want to volunteer on a regular basis, but would like to volunteer occasionally for events and such,” said Bo Cox, the voluntary service specialist at Chattanooga VA Outpatient Clinic.

Volunteers say this is a great way to give back.

“Veterans are very appreciative of the help they get here, not just from the clinic but they come up and address you individually and address you individually and thank you for being here and a volunteer. They really appreciate it,” said Jonnie Cox, a VA volunteer.

If you would like to volunteer at the Chattanooga VA,  contact Bo Cox at 423-893-6500, extension 27093.
