Volunteering for Veterans

Stand Down San Diego 2015, an annual intervention and support program for homeless veterans and dependents, hosted a variety of volunteers that served veterans with meals, water, showers, haircuts, fresh clothes, and more. The event has been held on the athletic fields of San Diego High School every year since 1988, and it has been replicated in more than 200 other U.S. cities. For their eighth consecutive year, the Del Mar-Solana Beach Rotary Club participated in the three-day event by giving more than 5,600 water bottles to the homeless vets. The water was purchased by the club and was transported, chilled, and handed out by more than 25 Rotarians and their friends, who worked in three-hour shifts throughout the weekend.
