Stand Down for Veterans This Month


Stand Down for Veterans

The Vets 4 Vets Stand Down brings together government agencies, faith-based organizations, housing providers, nonprofit agencies, and local businesses to connect veterans with job services, legal advice, financial advice, claims and benefits, family services, psychological and addiction counseling, physical therapy, and haircuts. Medical services and health screenings such as dental, blood pressure, hearing and vision will also be available. Homeless veterans are also able to receive clothing, shoes, and other surplus supplies, provided they have met the eligibility requirements. The Stand Down is open to all area veterans and their families. We need your help to make this event a success.

 

Event coordinators are looking for RSVP volunteers to assist veterans with the various booths at the Stand Down and to ensure their intake forms are completed. The Stand Down runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 28 and Saturday, Sept. 29 at the Montana ExpoPark’s Mercantile Building. Volunteers can work a full day or partial day. To sign up or get more information, contact Jessica at 727-3400 or jbriggs@uwccmt.org.
