TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — Veterans in Tippecanoe County were treated with food and access to services at this year's Lafayette Stand Down.
The event was held at the Tippecanoe County Fairgrounds on Saturday. It was designed to help veterans dealing with homelessness or financial issues.
Dozens of community outreach programs had booths set up and volunteers served the veterans breakfast and lunch.
Clemens Schroll, member of the Tippecanoe County Veterans Council said this event is full of helping hands in the community.
"It's a good thing to meet all these people," said Schroll. "All the different organizations from the lions club and the navy and marine corps league and everybody provides a little something different but we're here to give the veterans what they need."
Schroll says they served nearly 85 veterans and their families this year.
