Keep Your Finger On The Pulse
We are celebrating 25-years of the Manatee County Stand Down!
Join us for a day of live music, fun, and food, as we connect veterans and non-veterans to resources.
FREE shuttle service to the Fairgrounds is available at the Downtown Bradenton Transit Station – 1301 6th Ave West
Stand Down focuses on helping veterans and non-veterans who are at risk of homelessness or who are experiencing homelessness, connect to resources and receive critical needs services. Everyone and anyone who comes to Stand Down receives services that day. Plus there is live music, food, fun, and great camaraderie all morning! Over 600 attendees and volunteers attend.
Services include: veterans services, Career Fair, hot lunch, showers, distribution of hygiene products, haircuts, general and mental health screenings, dental and vision services, raffles, kids games/activities, and Veterans Amnesty Court.
During the past few years, the Amnesty Court by the 12th Judicial Circuit Court has dismissed over $80,000 in fines and court fees for our local veterans.
