The Many Ways To Give

Donation Of Time:
One of the most precious and generous gifts is of your time. We have many positions in our facility that are waiting to be filled by individuals or groups that are willing and able to give of themselves. Contacting the Voluntary Service office at the Albany Stratton VAMC will provide you with more information. Some examples:

  • Administrative/Clerical
  • Companion/Friendly Visitor
  • Greeter
  • Fisher House

Monetary And Material Goods:
Our medical center could not provide many of the services for our veterans if it were not for the generosity of people in the community; the veterans service organizations, fraternal organizations, and businesses. Donations of cash and materials supplement the operating budget of the facility and provide for the increasing needs of the veterans we serve. Contacting the Voluntary Service office at the Albany Stratton VAMC will provide you with more information on ongoing programs and projects that need your help. All items must be new and in original packaging or have tags. Recent examples:

  • Cans of regular coffee, creamer and sugar
  • Crossword puzzle books (large print)
