Volunteer Opportunities

  • Veterans Help Net “Helping Veterans find Hope and Help”

VeteransHelpNet is a volunteer Veteran Support Organization that started in the Northwest and serves North Idaho and Eastern Washington Veterans. Our mission is to increase awareness of little known or forgotten benefits and services available to veterans and their families. One of our projects led to the publication of the Veterans Chronicle. We provide the content for this paper by gathering the Veteran’s Stories and “Did You Know?” articles for this publication. We need some volunteers to help us gather and edit these stories and help us communicate with the hundreds of Veteran Service Organizations across the area. If you have an interest, questions, or more information, contact Don Walker at (509) 655-9266 or info@veteranshelpnet.com.
