Voices For Veterans, a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization, in collaboration with the North Olympic Regional Veteran’s Housing Network (NORVHN), will be holding a “Grab and Go” event on Thursday, May 6 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Transit Center in Forks.
Because of Covid-19 restrictions, and uncertainties about gathering, the decision was made not to have a regular Stand Down at the Elks Lodge. There is still hope for the October Stand Down in Port Angeles and as information becomes available it will be published.
This Grab and Go event is low-key, for west end veterans only, and will focus on distributing bags of flyers/handouts from various organizations that help and support veterans that can be contacted if the veteran has questions or needs assistance.
Voices For Veterans is disappointed that for a second year they have been unable to put on the yearly Forks Stand Down, but in the interest of keeping providers, volunteers, and attendees safe and healthy this was chosen as a way to keep in touch with the area veterans and to remind them of all the services that are available to them and that they are not forgotten.
Please come out and pick up a bag and let us know how you are doing and if there is anything specific we can help you with. Please wear a mask and do not come if you are sick.
