Since we began in 1990, volunteers have played a critical role in Veterans Inc.’s success and growth. As a nonprofit organization, we simply could not provide the level of services that we do without your assistance. The countless hours of time and talent, in addition to monetary and in-kind support, ensure that Veterans Inc. can continue its mission to improve the lives of veterans and their families and, ultimately, save lives.
Here’s how you can you help our veterans and their families at Veterans Inc.:
Driver – Call (508) 791-1213 ext. 196 for more information.
Events & Programs for our veterans – Help by sponsoring events for the residents of our housing programs, including but not limited to seasonal/holiday parties, cookouts, as well as the annual Stand Down in June and our annual Holiday Harvest.
Facility & Maintenance Projects – We always need people to help with repairs and maintenance of our grounds and facilities.
Food Services – Help hand out food to our veterans and their families in Worcester County at our food pantry or help serve or sponsor a meal in our hot meals program. Our food pantry is open on the second and fourth Thursday of every month, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Our hot meals program serves lunch and dinner 365 days a year.
Fundraising Events – Assist with our annual Freedom Song Festival, Golf Tournament, Pancake Breakfast and Road Race, as well as the biennial Gala Military Ball. Volunteers help with event planning, management, and promotion.

Office Support – Help Veterans Inc. process seasonal donations, prepare bulk mailings, and manage other special projects.
Recreational Activities – Spend a few hours sponsoring a recreational activity for our residents. Examples include movie nights, basketball or softball games, tennis, fishing, nature walks, and board game tournaments.
Run a Donation Drive – Collect items on our Wish List. Food, clothing, toiletry, and gift card drives in particular are very helpful. PLEASE NOTE: If you would like to run a donation drive, please contact email@example.com
Tutor/Teach – Have experience teaching a subject or activity? Tutoring individuals or teaching a class is an opportunity to change the outlook of another person. Conduct a class in health, wellness, nutrition, fitness, and more. Background and experience in the subject matter are required.
