Triad Stand Down

Volunteers in the Triad for one special weekend pull together to help Homeless Veterans at the Triad Veterans Stand-Down. This is not just a special day for homeless veterans, it is a special day for the veterans and patriots who volunteer to give back to those who serve this great Nation, in this case, those who have encountered hardships in their life or during their service. Why are they special? They served in the armed forces of the United States of America and for their commitment to protect us we have a duty to respect them in their time of need. Look at it as simply returning a favor.

Triad Stand-Down is typically held on the 4th Friday in September each year. Located in Greensboro and serving homeless veterans in the Triad area, it serves well over 100 homeless veterans every year, providing services ranging from job training and IRS tax preparation to haircuts and dental care.
