The 24th annual day of appreciation for veterans and families. The event kicks off a program created by St. Vincent de Paul to assist veterans and their families in Eastern Washington and the five Northern Idaho counties with services throughout the year. Stand Down refers to a community-based intervention program to assist all veterans who are homeless or at risk of being homeless with information and services. The North Idaho Veterans Stand Down also incorporates services for veterans’ dependents. Veterans will have the opportunity to meet personally with VA healthcare and benefits representatives. Organizations that provide medical, dental, counseling, housing, clothing, clothing repair, food assistance, haircuts, massages and bike repair will be available. A hot meal will be served to all attendees, volunteers and service providers. Employers with job openings will also be present. Homeless veterans will be eligible to receive military surplus. To volunteer, request more information, or for veterans assistance, please call Eric Swanbeck, Veteran Services Coordinator at St. Vincent de Paul or email at eric@stvincentdepaulcda.org.
