Volunteers are needed to help at VA Hospital in Tucson and at other Veteran's activities that we support. Use the "Contact" page to contact us if you wish to volunteer. You do not need to be a MOPH member to volunteer to help our veterans.
Donations are needed to help our veterans. Use the "Donations" page to make a donation. Chapter 442 is a tax-exempt, non-profit veterans group operating as a 501(C) organization. Chapter 442 owns no real estate and its officers and volunteers work from their homes and serve without pay or financial incentive. One hundred percent of all contributed money is applied to further the work described above. The chapter does not engage in mass-mailings or phone solicitation, and does not employ professional fund-raisers. Instead, we rely upon the good will of those who know of and support our worthy programs; primarily through “Donations" from among the membership, from outside individuals and from corporate donors. Donations to MOPH Chapter 442 fully qualify as charitable contributions under the federal tax code and IRS rules.
