There’s an upcoming event in LaPorte County to help veterans. The LaPorte Military Veteran Stand Down sponsored by Goodwill’s Workforce Development Services and featuring several community partners is scheduled Friday, August 7th, noon to 3 pm at the LaPorte County Fairgrounds. The goal of a Stand Down is to help veterans and their families who are experiencing financial obstacles. Due to COVID-19, this year’s Stand Down will be held as a drive-thru event, but there will be a pedestrian service tent available for those who are not able to access the event by driving thru. Veterans are asked to pre-register for the event if possible. Here is a link for more information.
