We were proud to support our military veterans last week at this great event.

It’s critical communities come together to support those in need. Many in Orange County are struggling to receive basic resources. Far too many of our military veterans face homelessness and other difficult life circumstances including mental illness and unemployment. In fact, 1,388 Veterans are homeless in Orange County and 6,048 veterans are unemployed at any one time. However, there are many great organizations working to improve our veterans’ quality of life.
The Stand UP for Veterans event brought a wide variety of organizations providing resources to those who’ve served.
Bonnie and I were excited to attend the Stand UP for Veterans event last Thursday in Santa Ana. We heard about it through local realtor and veteran John Hacker at the Orange County Association of Realtors (OCAR). John shared with us the opportunity to get involved. Since a key value of our family’s business is community service, we were proud to support this great cause. The goal of this event was to “help United States Veterans who are homeless, displaced, disabled or otherwise in transition become integrated into our community.” Service providers came together to offer resources for mental health, medical, housing, clothing, employment, law and education/training. A beauty and massage school even gave free haircuts and massages!
Each veteran was greeted and paired with a peer mentor who guided them to resources specific to their needs.
They left with a large duffel bag filled with resources. Everything from socks and underwear to a pillow and a handmade blanket woven from plastic bags were included. This innovative blanket (see picture above) not only retains body heat for the winter, but also helps fend off moisture from the ground. We left the event encouraged to see so many people gathered to support those who’ve served and eager to find new ways to partner with veterans organizations in the future.
