It’s almost here!

As we approach the final week of preparations before our 10th Annual Five Seasons Stand Down, let me take a moment to pause and reflect on this past year.

Our Board, Committee Members, and Volunteers have worked hard all year to ensure that this 10th Anniversary celebration of the Five Seasons Stand Down provides the best resources available to our homeless and nearly-homeless Veterans and non-Veterans.

Our Community Partnerships, Sponsors, and Donors have been very generous this year, with many of our Sponsors and Donors returning year after year. We live in a very giving community here in Linn County and that generosity is so greatly appreciated.

If you are a homeless or nearly-homeless Veteran or non-Veteran and happen upon our webpage, please consider showing up at the Veterans Memorial Stadium (home of the Cedar Rapids Kernels) on the morning of Friday, September 4th, 2015, to learn more about our Resource Fair.

Our organization is committed to providing a safe and welcoming environment for our participants and we are always happy to answer your questions. This year, our STAFF will be wearing neon yellow-green T-shirts so we are easy to locate if you have any questions or concerns.

Our Sponsors and Donors are always welcome to attend and are free to walk through the Resource Fair and share lunch with us. Just let the Greeters at the front gate know you are a Sponsor or Donor.

Our entire team is looking forward to meeting each and every one of you who attend. It’s going to be a great event.
