I have the privilege of working for an amazing company that does a lot of amazing things in our community to give back. This event is one I've heard several coworkers talk about in years past, and I've never had the opportunity to go until today. Stand down is an event to provide free services to veterans in the area and assist them in the process of getting back on their feet. We collected donations of personal care items to give away and sent several students to give free haircuts to anyone who was interested. Our tent was buzzing with activity (well, the clippers too!) and there were so many wonderful connections made. I loved being a part of this event, and hope to participate for years to come!
Below are several images from the day, I had a really hard time narrowing them down... so there's a lot! First I'll post a few major before and after changes that happened
