Why Volunteer at VAS?
“No one is more cherished in this world than someone who lightens the burden of another”. This anonymous quote certainly applies to the volunteers at VAS. Our volunteers are our most important resource. Not only do they play a key role in the structure of our organization, they provide a service that is invaluable to seniors who are having trouble understanding their benefits and entitlements.
For one senior, help received from a VAS volunteer resulted in a savings of $120,000 annually in prescription medication costs. By comparing prescription drug plans, the VAS volunteer was able to find a plan that covered the seniors very expensive medications, making it possible for the individual to afford his oral cancer medications.
