Fall Stand Down to serve vets, families Saturday

Event is for veterans and their families

Kitsap County veterans and their families are invited to the Fall 2019 Veterans Stand Down, set to take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 28, at the Sheridan Park Community Center in Bremerton.

The event is open to Kitsap County veterans and their immediate families only. Veterans are asked to provide a DD214 form, military retiree ID card or VA card. Unaccompanied family members must bring a DD214 and proof of relationship. Active duty members transitioning out of the military or retiring by the end of 2019 are also invited to gather information and resources that will assist in their transition to civilian life.

Complimentary services for veterans — women, men and their families — will be available, including free dental screening, clothing, hot meals, food, hygiene items and haircuts. There also will be a separate women’s circle. Help with housing, employment and legal assistance; education and training services; and resources for emergency shelter and social services also will be available.

The event is coordinated by the Kitsap Area Veterans Alliance and Kitsap County Veterans Program with dozens of partnering organizations, volunteers and donors.

For more information, contact Kitsap County Veterans Assistance program coordinator Andrew Sargent at 360-337-4811 or asargent@co.kitsap.wa.us.
