Dear Community Supporter

The 9th Annual Delaware Veterans’ Stand Down event will be held on Friday, September 22, 2017, commencing at 9:00 a.m. and ending at 2:00 p.m., at:


Schutte Park

10 Electric Avenue

Dover, Delaware 19901


A Veterans’ Stand Down is a one-day outreach event, for all Veterans and their guests.  Agencies and local service providers across the state volunteer to participate and provide critically needed assistance in one convenient location for our veterans.  Services include housing, medical, dental, flu shots, behavioral health, VA eligibility and benefits, haircuts, legal service, hot lunch, warm clothing, employment readiness assistance, camaraderie among fellow veterans and much more!

At last year’s event, we hosted 130 organizations that assisted 1,100 Veterans’ and Guests.  Of the 1,100 attendees, 92 were HOMELESS or at risk for homelessness!  In addition to the services, our Delaware Veterans’ were excited about being served a hot meal.   The Stand Down event is organized, planned, and carried out by a 100% volunteer committee.  The Stand Down is a rollup-your-sleeves-and-serve volunteer event to help those who served our country.

This September, we are expecting at least 1,000 guests to attend the Stand Down event, and we simply can’t do it without the financial support and in kind donations from our community!   We are currently seeking donations to offset event costs; especially the hot meal served.  We hope you will make a generous donation – All donations are tax-deductible and made payable to the ” Delaware Veterans Stand Down.”  Donations may be mailed with the attached form and addressed to the above address.  Every little bit helps and “Thank You” for your consideration and commitment to our Delaware Veterans!
