Manteno Vet Home Volunteer Fair

As part of National Volunteer Week, The Illinois Veterans’ Home at Manteno invites veteran service providers, community organizations and individuals to a volunteer fair to learn more about volunteer opportunities and enjoy food from local food trucks.

The fair, which will include volunteer staff and volunteers to share their experiences and the needs of the home, will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, April 26 at the veteran’s home, 1 Veterans Drive, Manteno, Veterans Hall.

Since COVID-19, the Veterans’ Homes across the state have lost many volunteers. Across the nation, the number of volunteers dropped seven percent, from 30 to 23 percent, between 2019-2021.

The homes, because of COVID-19 and mandated restrictions, experienced an even greater decline in volunteerism. Building back IDVA’s volunteer base is critical to providing important services and opportunities for residents in its care.
