Volunteer VA Medical Drivers Needed

Drivers are needed to help transport local veterans to appointments at the Oscar G. Johnson VA Medical Center in Iron Mountain.

Officials at the Center say there is a critical lack of drivers in Houghton, Keweenaw and Baraga Counties. 

It’s a volunteer job, with no pay. Chief of Voluntary Services Katie Maxon says they’re hoping to find people willing to give back to those who defended our country.

Volunteers do not need to be veterans, and can choose when and how often they would like to drive.

In 2021, a hundred volunteer drivers transported 1,100 Veterans more than 141,000 miles across the Upper Peninsula and northeast Wisconsin to their VA appointments in Iron Mountain at no charge to the Veterans.   

To volunteer as a driver, call the Houghton County Veteran Service Office at (906) 482-0102.
