For the past seven years, the North Bay Operation Hand Up has hosted a homeless veteran’s stand down at the Dixon May Fair grounds. We have assisted more than 1,000 veterans and their families, giving them a “hand up and not a handout.” We recently had a fundraiser at the Vacaville Veterans Memorial Building that was huge success.

Thank you to all of the individuals, businesses and veterans organizations that contributed their time and donations. A very special thank you the Disabled American Veterans Chapter 84, Vacaville, which hosted the event.

We look forward to the 2008 stand down, which will be Oct. 14-16. Volunteers will be needed for the event. Please go to for more information.
