The Central Texas Veterans Health Care System is seeking volunteer van drivers interested in transporting Veterans in Killeen to and from their scheduled appointments at the Olin E. Teague Veterans’ Medical Center in Temple.

Transportation for Veterans from outlying areas, such as Killeen, is provided through a van fleet donated in collaboration with area Disabled American Veterans organizations and its members.

Personally-owned vehicles are not used to transport Veterans.

Volunteers must meet qualifications for drivers, such as a valid driver’s license, proof of current insurance, a safe driving record and a background check.

Applicants must also pass a physical examination.

Volunteers are eligible for meals, flu shots and an extensive volunteer recognition program.

If you’re interested in becoming a volunteer driver in Killeen, contact the Voluntary Service Office, Temple, Texas, at 254-743-0515 or 254-743-0740.
