Alaska USA Foundation donates $10,000 to Stand Down Alaska
 
Anchorage, Alaska – The Alaska USA Foundation is committed to supporting organizations that help provide much needed services in the communities we serve. For more than 17 years, the Foundation has been supporting nonprofits focused on helping children, veterans, and active-duty military personnel and their families.
Recently, the Alaska USA Foundation donated $10,000 to Stand Down, Inc. in Alaska, which brings homeless veterans together to provide better access to the community resources needed to begin addressing their individual problems and rebuild their lives. The funds directly support Stand Down, which is a one-day event where The Department of Veterans Affairs staff and volunteers provide food, clothing, and health screenings to homeless and at-risk Veterans. In addition, Veterans also receive referrals for health care, housing solutions, employment, substance abuse treatment, mental health counseling and other essential services.
“The Alaska USA Foundation is a long-time supporter of Stand Down,” said Dan McCue, Executive Director, Alaska USA Foundation. “Stand Down is a critical nonprofit for our Veterans providing essential services to those who have sacrificed so much for our country.”
