Caring citizens are invited to join in giving a "hand up" to our less fortunate men and women who have served honorably in military service. More than 1,000 volunteers with various sills and abilities are needed to support the operation of a "tent city" at the Alameda County Fairgrounds from Thursday, Sept. 13 through noon, Sunday, Sept. 16. All volunteers must register by Aug, 31 at www.eastbaystanddown.org/volreg/volunteer.php. Financial assistance is also greatly needed to support this huge endeavor and make a difference in the lives of so many Veterans who gave so much for themselves and for our Country. Checks may be sent to Diablo Valley Veterans Foundation EBSD, P.O. Box 2133, Danville, CA 94526.
