Due to Covid-19, we were not able to hold our 2020 Stand Down, yet we know the need has greatly increased due to the stress and financial pressures related to Covid. Our Stand Down is needed more this year than ever. We would like to ask for your support as a sponsor for this event that helps our nation’s most needy veterans. One veteran shared how the Stand Down impacted him when volunteers showed him so much love and appreciation. He was determined to make changes because others believed in him.
"In hopes of preventing the spread of the COVID-19 disease, we recommend masks and social distancing for all who participate in the Stand Down. COVID screening and temperature checks will be done prior to admission on our buses, overnight accommodations and at the Concourse. Additional sanitizing measures and safety protocols will be in place over the weekend."
