In recognition of National Volunteer Week, April 17-23, 2022, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is joining the nation in honoring volunteers and their contributions to the communities and organizations where they live and serve.

During National Volunteer Week, VA will formally recognize and honor our volunteers for their profound impact to not only Veterans and families but to our dedicated VA employees whose work is supplemented through the contributions of these individuals.

In fiscal year 2021, over 25,000 volunteers served more than 2.6 million volunteer hours. Individuals and partnering organizations gave over $101 million in gifts and donations. This effort accounts for a total value of more than $175 million in resources to Veterans at VA medical facilities across the country.
