CA East Bay Stand Down Days 2006

From the Oroville, CA Mercury Register:

"East Bay Stand Down 2006 is set to pitch its tents next week at the Alameda County Fairgrounds in an effort to reach out for homeless, downtrodden veterans. 'We pride ourselves as a one-stop shop,' said Jerry Yahiro, director of East Bay Stand Down. 'One-third of all the homeless you see in the Bay Area are veterans. Nationally, there are over 250,000 homeless veterans.'

The biennial event, which will run Aug. 10-13, will turn the fairgrounds into 'Tent City,' where homeless veterans and their relatives will be bused in throughout the Bay Area. Participants will receive free drug and alcohol counseling, dental care and medical attention. Judges will be present to settle warrants and other legal problems. There also will be job and benefits counseling."

Here's a full list of Stand Downs across the country. Pitch in any way you can, and make a vet's day!
