ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Veterans that need a home got some much needed help today.
This year’s “Stand Down and Hands Up” project at Noon Day Ministries provided food, hygiene kits and winter gear.
Veteran organizations were also there to enroll the veterans into health and housing programs.
“The veterans have served their country and many of them have been on the streets for a while. They have put that uniform on, they have put their lives at risk. It’s important they get the treatment they deserve for putting themselves out there,” said Elinor Reiners, CEO, Veterans Integration Center.
The project continues tomorrow at 9 a.m. for veterans and non-veterans.
Noon Day Ministries is located near 2nd and Menaul.
