Volunteer drivers needed to transport veterans to appointments

The Central Texas Veterans Health Care System hopes people will step up during the holidays to help veterans.

Drivers are needed to help transport veterans in Killeen to and from their scheduled appointments at the Olin E. Teague Veterans’ Medical Center in Temple.

Transportation for veterans will be provided through a van fleet donated in collaboration with area Disabled American Veterans organizations and its members. Personally-owned vehicles are not used to transport veterans.

If interested, volunteers must meet qualifications for drivers, such as a valid driver’s license, proof of current insurance, a safe driving record and a background check. Applicants must also pass a physical examination.  

Volunteers are also eligible for meals, flu shots and an extensive volunteer recognition program.

If you’re interested in becoming a volunteer driver in Killeen, contact the Voluntary Service Office, Temple, Texas, at 254-743-0515 or 254-743-0740.
