Stand Down Event for Homeless Veterans November 16

Support the Stand Down event for homeless veterans happening Saturday, November 16 from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm at 101 East Maud Street in Tavares. Stand Down refers to a grassroots community-based program designed to help the nation’s estimated 107,000 homeless veterans. Homeless veterans are brought together and are provided access to community resources needed to begin addressing their individual problems and rebuilding their lives. This event is sponsored in part by The Veterans Organization of Resource & Recovery for the Homeless in Eustis. The planning committee is asking for help in collecting items for the veterans and in finding veterans to act as ‘Battle Buddies’ to the homeless vets during the Stand Down event. Their job will be to escort homeless veterans around the event. Signup sheets, the list of items requested, and a bin for collecting them are available onsite at UUCLC.
