Defense Secretary Hagel Marks Veterans Day At The Vietnam War MemorialJoin us again for our 4th Annual community and volunteer driven Veterans Resource Fair at the Tacoma Dome.  

At last years 2016 event we fed over 1,000 persons, gave out over $60,000 of gear and created a lot of opportunities and friendships.  We want to give a lot of thanks, high-fives, and hand shakes to all that invested there time and energy in making sure everything worked out.  

Quick info on what's next for this year...

Last year over 1,400 Veterans and their families attended this event and found local, state, and federal programs, some found jobs, some figured out how to go back to school, some found belonging, but everybody that attended found some type of help.     

- In Mid-March we will send out emails to sign up groups interested in showing and tabling their services and resources to the public. 

- In the beginning of April we will send out emails to start signing up volunteers.  As usual we will need volunteers on Friday May 12 (8am - 3pm) to set up, and Saturday (8am - 3pm) to help run the event.  Hope to hear from you then.  

- If you want to donate in other ways we are always looking for monetary donations and physical donations of "shoes, new underwear and socks, back packs, boots, blankets, sleeping bags, tents, or similar items. We ask for these types of things because we will be providing resources like this to homeless Veterans that come to the event. Please contact us so we can work out any details before the event.  Thank you.
