Veteran Volunteer Vincent Savarino

Woodrow Wilson was President when Veteran Volunteer Vincent Savarino was born. This month he will celebrate birthday number 100 during National Volunteer Week at the Wilkes-Barre VA medical center.

As the medical center’s oldest active volunteer, Savarino’s work ethic is like no other. Refusing to retire although he will reach 100 years of age April 23, he jokingly explains that, “My pay would be docked if I didn’t show up for a day of work.”

Savarino volunteers at the medical center each week as an Information Desk Ambassador and as a member of the Popcorn Committee where he makes and sells popcorn to benefit inpatients. His 100th birthday will be celebrated at the medical center in Wilkes-Barre during National Volunteer Week.
