Volunteer or Donate

The Iowa City VA depends on the goodwill of our benefactors and volunteers who wish to give something back to America's heroes.


Volunteers provide many important functions throughout the Medical Center and help make our patients' stay more enjoyable. Volunteers can perform a number of services, and a volunteer's talents are closely matched with one of our many assignments. You can also review our Needs List for additional information.

To volunteer, call or visit the Iowa City VA Voluntary Service Office at (319) 338-0581 ext 6270. We will be happy to receive your application or discuss how you can help us in our mission to provide comfort and care to America's veterans.

  • hygiene products
  • refreshment supplies
  • cable television for patient areas
  • recreational activities

Non-cash contributions are used to make our patients' stay more enjoyable. Items which are accepted include

  • new clothing
