The 2014 Five Seasons Stand Down was a resounding success thanks to our 2014 Sponsors, Partners, Participants, and Volunteers!
Our 9th Annual Five Seasons Stand Down was held September 5, 2014, at Veterans Memorial Stadium in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
We served 106 Veterans and 40 non-veterans this year, up 23% from those served in 2013.
Twenty-three businesses, organizations, and individuals donated more than $8,000 in cash contributions and individuals contributed in-kind donations valued at $129,059.64 which included $126,000 worth of goods from the Disabled Veterans National Foundation.
Seventy-two community agencies participated in providing services at the Resource Fair, of which 15 were dedicated to Veterans’ Services.
We had over 50 community volunteers helping our participants this year in addition to our Board and Committee Members. Our local Veterans Organizations were well represented at our event and were a tremendous help in providing assistance to our participants.
As we begin our 2015 campaign for our 10th Annual Five Seasons Stand Down, we are reminded of the many organizations and community partners to whom we owe our THANKS! We look forward to working with all of you again this year.
