The Claremore Veterans Centers wants to remind our community that we can help your students meet their community service goals. The athletic, music, and band departments, Scouts, FFA, National Honor Societies, ROTC/Honor Guard programs, 4H and other youth organizations can discover countless volunteer opportunities by reaching out to our veterans at the CVC. Small acts of kindness can be life-changing for the students as well for our veterans.
The Recreational Activity Department often utilizes the assistance of community volunteers and service organizations to provide a well-rounded activity department, as well as to help promote community interaction with our veterans. To learn more about volunteering please drop us an email or give us a call and we will be happy to set up an appointment. We’ll show you around, introduce you to some of our volunteers and resident veterans.
If you are interested in setting up a Veteran Military Employee/Member Resource Group within your work place, organization, or business please contact Bert Ellard at (918) 342-5432 x366. He’s at the CVC Thursday – Monday from 7a – 3:30p.
