Skivvies for Stand Down

June 3, 2019
Skivvies for Standown

Every year since 2015, I have spearheaded Socks for Stand Down, providing thousands of pairs of socks and underwear for veterans who participate in Stand Down, an annual three-day event run by Veterans Village of San Diego where struggling military veterans can access services, bond with one another and get some much-deserved rest and relaxation.

The drive has been so successful – thanks to incredibly generous San Diegans – that Veterans Village doesn’t need any more socks!

So, this year, I’m shifting to Skivvies for Stand Down, because they still need undergarments, and I’m asking you, if you’re able, to donate new underwear, bras and undershirts for men, women and children in need.
