Volunteer program @ Sheridan VAHCS
Nov 29 all-day

SHERIDAN — The Sheridan Veterans Affairs Health Care System will kick off a new volunteer opportunity Wednesday. 

The “Red Coat Ambassador Program” volunteers will have the opportunity to be the first friendly face to veterans, families and guests as they arrive at the VA facility.

Volunteers will provide information on appointment and staff locations, when needed, so veterans can more easily navigate the facility. They will also escort veterans who need assistance getting to their appointments.

Those interested in the program are encouraged to stop by the Sheridan VAHCS Building 71 on the Sheridan campus from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday. Those who can’t make it but want details can call 675-3226 or 675-3225.
