Councilman Hollander Thanks Robley Rex VA Medical Center Volunteers

April 24, 2015

Louisville – Councilman Bill Hollander met with volunteers at the Robley Rex VA Medical Center in District 9 today to thank them. The group spent the morning working on the Center’s landscaping as part of Mayor Fischer’s Give A Day Week of Service. 

“So many people have been working all over District 9 in Give A Day activities but it was especially nice to see the volunteers working to make things a little brighter for the Veterans who travel these paths every day,” said Hollander. “We are fortunate to have the Robley Rex VA Medical Center in District 9 and it is great to see volunteers honor our nation’s heroes in this way.” 

Volunteers from Strategic Communications, a Louisville-based voice, data and video solutions company, Lowe’s and Service for Peace Kentucky were involved in today’s efforts.  Mary Sullivan of Metro United Way, along with representatives of the VA Medical Center, were also on hand to thank the volunteers for their work.

The Robley Rex VA Medical Center is an active, affiliated acute care and outpatient facility located on a 47-acre hilltop off Zorn Avenue in District 9. The Medical Center also operates three community based outpatient clinics in the greater Louisville area (Dupont, Newburg, and Shively), one in Grayson County, one in Fort Knox, KY, and one in Scottsburg and one in New Albany, IN.

The Robley Rex VAMC depends on the goodwill of volunteers who wish to give something back to America's heroes. To volunteer, call or visit the Voluntary Service Office:
