Supporting our local veterans and Sacramento Stand Down
December 14, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am EST
Look for the Count on Kids flag!
The term “Stand Down” is used when exhausted combat troops are removed from the field of battle and taken to a safe place to relax and receive a break from the difficulties and harshness of battle. At these Stand Downs and similarly ours, Veterans can find hot meals, showers, medical care, and supportive services. Sacramento Stand Down provides a three day reprieve from the hardships of life on the streets and provide a safe and secure place to relax and obtain the basic necessities while enjoying the camaraderie of other veterans and the welcoming arms of volunteers and service providers to help them begin their journey out of homelessness.
If you happen to have travel sized toiletries, we’d love collect those from you. We use them in our various projects throughout the year. 🙂
Note: We believe that all children, even infants, benefit from our programs. All ages are welcome and encouraged to attend. An infant will require more involvement from the parent whereas a teenager will receive guidance from our staff to participate in a more leadership capacity.
