Martinsburg VA Medical Center
Volunteer or Donate
In response to the concerns raised by COVID-19, the Martinsburg VAMC Summer Youth Volunteer Program has been canceled. This was not an easy decision, but it is necessary for the safety of our Veteran patients, employees and the youth who would serve as volunteers. We look forward to resuming the program in the summer of 2021. For more information please contact the Voluntary Service Office.
The Martinsburg VA Medical Center (VAMC) depends on the love and devotion of our Veteran Service Organizations and volunteers whose sole purpose is to serve America's Veterans.
Volunteers are making a difference in VA health care. Our volunteers provide many important services throughout the medical center to help make our patients' stay more comfortable and help us accomplish our mission of service.
