WHAT: VA Western New York Healthcare System Annual Volunteer Recognition Ceremony.
WHERE: Classics V, 2425 Niagara Falls Blvd., Amherst, NY 14228
WHEN: Wednesday, April 16, noon.
WHY: Each year, the Department of Veterans Affairs Voluntary Service (VAVS) joins the Nation to observe and celebrate National Volunteer Week, when we formally recognize and honor the profound impact and contributions of VA volunteers for their service to Veterans and their families. In Fiscal Year 2013, more than 79,000 volunteers contributed more than 11.3 million hours of service to Veterans at VA medical facilities across the country. During National Volunteer Week, April 6-12, 2014, VA awards and recognizes volunteers for their service, honoring the service of our country’s most committed volunteers and sharing their achievements to encourage more Americans to volunteer.
This year, VA Western New York Healthcare System will award and recognize volunteers for their service by sharing their achievements on Wednesday, April 16, 2014 at the Volunteer Recognition Ceremony luncheon.
