"Boots On The Ground" In A Good Sense
Many communities host "Stand Down" events for homeless veterans, and most are held late in the year, just as the weather is turning colder.
So it is with the North Coast Stand Down, set for early October in Ferndale.
But the organizers are getting a head start on this year's event with a "Boots on the Ground" campaign.
It's a literal thing: the idea is to buy boots for veterans in plenty of time for the autumn event.
North Coast Stand Down's board president joins us with details.
