IBEW Journal - October 2018 Article
The 26th annual Ventura County Stand Down was held July 27-29 this year to provide meals, haircuts and legal advice, as well as medical, eye and dental exams, for homeless veterans in the county.
Since the event's inception in 1992, IBEW Local 952 has partnered with Claire L. Hope, founder and director of the Ventura County Stand Down, to provide temporary power at the California Army National Guard Armory for the occasion.
With the homeless population increasing in the county, Local 952 takes a stand with county officials, veterans, and volunteers to provide hope to our homeless veteran population. Local 952 is proud to honor our veterans, both inside our local and throughout the county.
A special thank-you to Taft Electric Company for continually providing the temporary power needed to make this event possible.
