Stand Down for Veterans

Stand Down San Diego, a weekend organized by Veterans Village, helps homeless military veterans receive shelter, meals and clothing, as well as medical assistance, legal aid, substance abuse counseling and referrals to transitional housing and job training. Last year, almost 1,000 veterans attended, and each year the number of women veterans has been increasing. The event, held on the grounds of San Diego High School on July 22-24, shows these veterans that their sacrifice on behalf of our country has not been forgotten.

In June, we will collect:
Used Bath Towels
New Underwear for Men and Women (bottoms only)
New White Socks

Bring your donations to the barrel in the front office lobby of the Temple, and the Social Action Committee will make sure they get distributed at Stand Down. For any questions, please contact Lee Loventhal at (858) 384-6847.
If you are interested in volunteering during Stand Down, please see the Veterans Village website, www.vvsd.net. They need help in such areas as clothing, baggage check, distribution of towels and toiletries at the showers, and more.
