The "East Bay Stand Down" is a fantastic and caring way to help support our Veterans. Thank you to the leadership at the Fairgrounds for again being an important asset in our community!

Recent revelations about unethical and illegal behavior at charitable organizations have made it harder to trust these calls for help.
Will this turn out to be another organization with 3 "full-time volunteers" and 5 paid directors, each putting in 2 hours per month and pulling in six-figure salaries, that spends 98% of the donations it collects on "expenses related to personnel" and 2% on the service it claims to provide?
Maybe these solicitations should include attachments with auditor-certified financial reports filed by the organization since foundation.
Sad and frustrated,

What has our society come to in allowing veterans to become homeless? These people have fought our Gwars and protected our freedoms.
