North Bay Stand Down 2002 will be a daylong grassroots, community-based outreach
to homeless veterans in the area.

On July 18th, the May Fair in Dixon will become a safe, but temporary,
encampment for homeless and needy veterans and their families from Solano, Napa
and Yolo Counties.

We will provide food, clothing, showers and haircuts.

North Bay Stand Down needs financial assistance and volunteers to help with
logistics.

It needs donations of food, recreation equipment, clothing, blankets and
sleeping bags, batteries, toothbrushes, cots, bus drivers, clerical support and
transportation.

A tax-deductible contribution can be made payable to the Operation Hand Up Fund
and mailed to the
Solano Community Foundation,
744 Empire St., Suite 210,
Fairfield, CA 94533.

If you can help, contact the North Bay Stand Down at (800) 400-6001, (707)
452-0237 or Patrick Stasio, county public health nurse, (707) 738-7283.
