Volunteer or Donate

At Wilmington VAMC, the health and safety of our patients and Volunteers is our top priority. Given the current circumstances surrounding COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus), we are taking significant precautions to help prevent the potential spread of the virus in our region, as a result, Voluntary Services is not accepting new Volunteers at this time.

Volunteer or Donate 

At the Wilmington VA Medical Center and Community Based Outpatient Clinics, we depend on the goodwill of our benefactors and volunteers who wish to give something back to America's heroes. If you are interested in making a monetary donation, you may do so online at: E Donate

At the medical center, we also accept “in kind” donations such as used books, crafts, puzzles, and new clothing items. If you have something you would like to donate, please call (302) 994-2511, ext. 4545 for additional information.

Want to Volunteer your time?

Volunteers provide many important functions throughout the Medical Center and help make the Veteran and family experience more enjoyable. Volunteers can perform any number of services. We try to match volunteer's talents and interests with one of our many assignments

Volunteering is a commitment and we ask you to consider volunteering 100 hours the first year. The suggested minimum volunteer time for each visit should be four hours, however, many choose to work longer. Most volunteer assignments are between 7 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., Mon. – Fri. 

To become a VA Volunteer, you must complete a Volunteer Application (VA Form 10-7055 Application for Voluntary Service). You may submit your completed application online or print and fax it to (302) 633-5584. After completing the application, you will be invited to attend one of our Volunteer Orientation classes which are held monthly. 

When you come to the class, you will need two forms of identification for your background clearance and be tested for TB. Volunteer Drivers have additional qualifications. When attending the Volunteer Orientation class, you may use our free Valet Parking. The training class is held in the auditorium adjacent to the Valet Parking Lobby on the Ground Floor. There are no fees associated with the Volunteer Application process; everything must be completed prior to being offered a volunteer position.

Please call (302) 994-2511, ext. 4061 for additional information.
