Operation Stand Down Rhode Island (OSDRI) requests your consideration in sponsoring a provider service tent at the organization’s Annual Stand Down Outreach Weekend for homeless and at-risk veterans. In recognition of your support, your company’s name and logo will be featured on a service provider tent and on the event banner during the weekend event; seen by veterans, volunteers, state agencies, dignitaries, and service providers to see.
During the weekend OSDRI sets up a military style encampment and invites service providers from across the state to join us to deliver life essential services to veterans in need. In 2017, approximately 500 homeless and at-risk veterans attended Stand Down Weekend. Additionally, more than 200 volunteers and over fifty nonprofit, state and federal agencies came together at the military style encampment at Diamond Hill State Park to provide the veterans with services including medical, dental, mental health care, legal assistance, employment and training resources, basic human needs assistance and much more.
