POSTED ON THURSDAY, 26 JULY 2018 04:25

LAKE COUNTY, Calif. — The fifth annual Lake-Mendocino Homeless Veterans Stand Down/Veterans Resource Fair is coming this September.

The stand down, organized by Lake County Vet Connect, will take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 19 , and Thursday, Sept. 20 at the Lake County Fairgrounds, 401 Martin Street, Lakeport.

Free lunch will be served to all attendants.

The stand down/resource fair event last year at the fairgrounds hosted more than 150 veterans and offered a variety of services, assistance and information provided by more than 25 agencies and organizations.

This year's stand down will offer access to on-site medical services, enrollment in healthcare and supplemental nutrition programs, as well as other programs relating to educational, employment, and food resource issues that are important to our veterans.

Numerous VA resources will be onsite in addition to other federal, state, county and community organizations offering programs and avenues of assistance.

Organizers are again seeking volunteers to assist with the event. Volunteers will assist in capacities including helping to set up and tear down the venue, staging and issuing materials and supplies to Veterans, and preparing food.

United Veterans Council of Lake County is still seeking financial assistance for the purchase of additional material and supplies.

If you would like to donate financial assistance or volunteer to assist with this event, please contact Frank Parker, Lake County Vet Connect Committee chairman, at 707-274-9512.
