AUGUSTA — MaineGeneral’s Retired Senior and Volunteer Program seeks volunteers to work with veterans and military families.

Volunteers will help veterans and military families access benefits, provide training to use a website portal designed to help navigate and track personal health care, and provide transportation to Togus VA hospital in Augusta, according to a press release.

Funding for the program comes from a grant RSVP awarded from the Corporation for National and Community Service. RSVP links people age 55 and older with volunteer opportunities in a wide variety of nonprofit organizations. The veterans program is RSVP’s newest signature program.

For more information or to volunteer, call Ellen McGuire, the AmeriCorp VISTA for this program at 861-3476 or 778-0427.
