Open house aims to teach vets about available services

The Veterans Administration Medical Center will host an open house Tuesday so veterans can learn more about services and programs the VA offers.

It’s part of a new nationwide initiative – a “Summer of Service” – that looks to create and expand partnerships with individuals and organizations who serve veterans.

The open house in Buffalo will run from 9 to 11 a.m. in Freedom Hall, Room 301 of the VA, 3495 Bailey Ave.

“While there is more work to do to honor our commitment to veterans, we also recognize that VA cannot do it alone,” Secretary of Veterans Affairs Robert A. McDonald said in a news release. “We are asking Americans everywhere to join the Summer of Service and help us give back to those who have given so much to our nation.”

The VA looks to build upon the ongoing work more than 350,000 employees and 76,000 volunteers around the nation, including 706 volunteers in Buffalo and Batavia.

Volunteers who look to help can visit www.volunteer.va.gov or call 862-8671 in Buffalo or (585) 297-1196 in Batavia.
