Letter: Delta Veterans Group Thanks Volunteers for Help at Stand Down on the Delta


The Delta Veterans Group would like to thank all of the Volunteers that served at the Stand Down on the Delta, 2017!

With your help, our community was able to provide services for over 260 veterans and their families.

Over 1,150 Volunteers came together over 10 days to set-up, serve and tear-down our  encampment. Over 5,800 meals were served in just 4 days!

Veterans received much needed Supportive Services, Medical Services, Dental Care, Vision  Care, and Mental Health Services. We also had Barbers, Beauticians, entertainment, spiritual  guidance and much more over the 4 days. Plus – their animals were cared for onsite by  C.A.R.T., CoCo County Animal Rescue Team.

We were also able to take over 40 Veterans Fishing on our Delta Shoreline…and YES, they  caught a lot of fish…The largest fish was caught by a female veteran for the second Stand  Down in a row…

All of this could not have happened without You – the VOLUNTEER!
