VA BHHCS Offers E-Donate
VA Black Hills Health Care System (BHHCS) is now offering E-Donate, an online donation option at http://www.blackhills.va.gov/ that will provide community members who wish to give back to Veterans at the medical center a simple and safe way to pledge their support to the fund of their choice.
"We’ve known for years that our community wants to show their support to the service members who defended their freedoms," said VA BHHCS Director Steve DiStasio. "Everyone doesn’t have the time to volunteer, but anyone can take five minutes online to make a donation that will directly serve the needs of Veterans."
The E-Donate option allows donors to select from a number of funds at the medical center they wish to donate to. Additionally, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) administrative costs are appropriated, so donors can be sure 100 percent of their donations go to the funds they select and the Veteran patients they are choosing to support.
"Donated money at VA BHHCS can be designated to support specific programs, such as patient recreation activities, special events, the hospice unit and other Veteran programs," said Cheryl Rieniets, Lead Voluntary Service Officer. "People would be amazed if they could see how far their dollar goes toward making a difference in the lives of the people who dedicated themselves to us first."
Donors can find the E-Donate button at http://www.blackhills.va.gov/. The actual donation is made through a secure site at the Department of Treasury’s www.pay.gov. A minimum of $5 is required for online donation.
