We Help Homeless Veterans & Veterans in Need

When a veteran in need arrives at St. Cloud Stand Down, we immediately provide a bag of basics, including pants, jeans, socks, underwear, shoes, boots, and other items of necessity. More than 50 businesses work with our veterans’ organization to provide legal help, medical screenings, mental health services, housing information, education services, haircuts, and more. We do all of this through the generous donations from members of the community that typically come through the regular raffles and events we host.
