Volunteers are needed to help improve the quality of life for veterans within the community.
Washington County Disability, Aging and Veteran Services, which serves over 3,600 veterans and their families each year, are recruiting volunteers to help them coordinate claims and appeals for veterans benefits.
The volunteers provide administrative support, including the upkeep of files, record keeping, researching case topics, computer data, telephone services, and special mailings.
Needed skills include a basic knowledge of office practices and procedures, an ability to effectively alphabetize files correctly and efficiently, good organization and communication skills, and an ability to maintain confidentiality.
The time commitment is flexible on most days and times. The Veteran Services office is open in Hillsboro, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., located at 180 E. Main Street, Suite 208.
