Operation Stand Down

The Liberty Regional Homeless Coalition has scheduled Operation Stand Down 2019 for Saturday, May 11 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

“This is the only event of its kind for the Greater Liberty County Region,” said Jim McIntosh, LRHC president. “Our goal is to reach out to active duty personnel reservists, National Guard, and veterans, along with their families, and make them aware of the many services available to them through the support agencies and business community.  Our target area will be the counties of Bryan, Liberty, Long, McIntosh, Tattnall and Wayne.”

The event is open to any organization that provides military and veteran services as a normal part of their operations, McIntosh said.  

If the organization is a 501 c. 3 non-profit organization, there is no charge for set-up. Commercial organizations are required to pay a fee of $25. Online registration is $27.50 unless the organization is an event sponsor.  There is no refund for failure to appear or cancellation within one week of the event.  

The site will be open at 8 a.m. for set-up, must be completed by 9:30 a.m. and ready to open at 10 a.m. and run until 3 p.m. In the event of rain, the event would be rescheduled.

The Liberty Regional Homeless Coalition reserves the right to reject any submission that does not meet its mission or operational standards. The space available is a 10-foot-by-10-foot, on a first-come, first serve basis. Public WiFi will be available for service connections. The registration deadline for vendors is May 1.

Fees will be used to cover the expenses for the event.  Any remaining funds will be placed in the Coalition’s General Assistance Fund.
