Help for Homeless Veterans
Physician volunteers are needed to help homeless veterans at Stand Down events that are taking place across Minnesota this summer and fall. Physician volunteers meet with veterans to provide free health screenings and consultations. Stand Downs are typically one-day events providing supplies and services, such as food, shelter, clothing, health screenings, and VA Social Security benefits counseling to homeless veterans.
This year’s Stand Down schedule includes these events:
St. Cloud Stand Down (Oct. 18, 2019)
- date changed from Oct. 25
• Location: St. Cloud Rivers Edge Convention Center
• Hours: 9 AM - 2 PM
Mankato Stand Down (Oct. 26, 2019)
• Location: Mankato Civic Center
• Time: 9 AM - 2 PM
- Notes: The MMA Foundation booth will offer flu shots, health screenings, and health consultations. We still hope to find at least one more physician volunteer to a one-hour shift at this event.
