We had another great event at our 2nd  annual Mason County Veteran “Stand Down” / Resource Event.  At this event we serve an average of 100 Veterans and dependents.  This usually includes more than 20 homeless Veterans, many poverty-stricken Veterans and many Veterans looking for help and information.  We are able to provide breakfast and lunch, as well as haircuts, toiletries, clothing and survival gear . We also have employment, legal and housing information, as well as the VA Mobile Medical Unit and other VA information and entities. in 2018 with the help of the Lions Club we hope to add vision/hearing options.

In a short time we have raised / brought in over  $5,000 in cash and new supplies between kit sponsors, smaller donations & new supplies.

How can you help our local Veterans in need?

The Mason County Veterans Advisory Board has teamed up with local VFW Post 1694 to accept tax-deductible donations for our local  MASON COUNTY Veterans in need. This will be an “'on-going-fund" that will help with resources and events for our local Homeless and Poverty-stricken Veterans. This includes supplying a " survival kit" for our homeless Veterans. The kit will include a rucksack, blanket/sleeping bag, food, toiletries, and some clothing. We will always have a kit on hand for immediate needs and will supply enough for all homeless MC Veterans that attend our stand down. Also, this fund will help with emergency needs throughout the year.  An example of this need would be wheelchair ramp, roof repair, etc.
We would be happy to accept any donation, as it all adds up quickly. $150 is approximate amount needed to cover a complete kit/ sponsor a veteran. Those who sponsor in services or cash donations will be acknowledged in a "Thank you" ad in the Journal early the following year based on their donations. Again, ALL donations are truly appreciated.
