A note from the Perry Point service specialist Brandi Sima has informed us that our holding pattern continues with volunteers returning to campus and we still do not have a timeline for when that might happen.
We are looking at virtual opportunities, including the phone buddy program, which has been well received by Veterans. Thank you to those who are making a difference by keeping Veterans company, even if only over the phone. Other options are connecting with the units for interactions via Webex (a public forum similar to Zoom, but approved by VA for use) or sending in recorded content…if you’re interested in possibly doing something (film a nature walk to share, play a piano or other instrument from home, do an art class), please let us know. You can contact Brandi at email@example.com.
If you haven’t checked it out already, we have a new means for communication with us and other VAMHCS Voluntary Service staff and volunteers. A private Facebook page has been created. You can find it here: groups/vamhcsvolunteers. This is for current, active VA Maryland Health Care System volunteers only.
I want to thank everyone for their continued efforts supporting our veterans during these challenging times. Despite the restrictions, the Sons of The American Legion have developed innovative and unique ways to assist our veterans.
Yours in Service,
Chairman, VAVS Commission
