AEP July Volunteer Event: OKC VA Medical Center

Like all medical facilities, Department of Veterans Affairs hospitals, nursing homes and clinics need volunteers to perform a wide range of duties. Some work directly with patients, participating in recreational programs and other activities on the wards. Others assist the VA’s professional staff or escort patients, serve coffee or simply provide companionship to veteran patients.


Many patients in this demographic are homeless and/or have lost touch with their families and lack adequate support systems which are crucial to their recovery process. For July’s volunteer event AEP members will have the opportunity to visit with veteran patients in small groups and provide support in the form of companionship.

Date & Time

Thursday, July 23rd 4:00pm


Oklahoma City VA Medical Center @ 921 NE 13th St, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma 73104

AEP is proud to annouce our February Volunteer event will be helping out at the USAW National Junior Championship event!

Volunteers will head to the URL listed at the bottom of this description, do a quick sign up, and then pick as many events as they wish! This is a broad list of events from February 12th through the 15th that include; set up crew, audio/visual staff, loaders, marshalls, warm-up area supervisors, and registration assistance. Most of these events are asking for 4-8 volunteers each and typically last 2-3 hours each.

According to their website, in 2015 the USA Weightlifting’s National Junior Championships will head to Oklahoma City as part of the Bart & Nadia Sports Experience. The event will take place February 12-15 in a joint venture between the Bart & Nadia Sports Experience, USA Weightlifting, the Oklahoma Weightlifting LWC and the Oklahoma City CVB.

Hosted at the Cox Convention Center, more than 200 of the best weightlifting athletes younger than age 20 in the nation will seek spots on Team USA’s Junior World Championship and Youth World Championship teams.

“From the beginning, our goal was to bring together like-minded sports, fitness and wellness activities in order to create a fun and inspiring event for families. We are honored that USA Weightlifting has chosen to bring one of its prestigious competitions to OKC in conjunction with our 2015 Bart & Nadia Sports Experience,” three-time Olympian Bart Conner said.
