North County Veteran Stand Down

About:  North County Veterans Stand Down (NCVSD) is an annual four-day event in Vista, California, that enables ALL veterans throughout San Diego County to receive much-needed services in a safe, friendly, drug-free, and secure environment.  Volunteers are needed in a variety of ways, see below.  This is a great project for both Life Groups and individuals.

Dates: October 20-23, 2022

Location:  Green Oak Ranch, 1237 Green Oak Ranch Rd. Vista, CA 92081

Sign up: Please sign up directly via the NCVSD website and make a notation that you are part of North Coast Church.  You may choose to sign up as a group or as an individual on their site.


Volunteer Opportunities: 

Guest Registration: Work directly with guests filling out health questionnaire and waiver forms upon arrival.  This is the first stop for the guests.

Battle Buddy: HIGHEST NEED on THURSDAY all day (AM/PM) and FRIDAY (AM). Guests are assigned to a Battle Buddy who assists them throughout the day.

Hospitality Store:  An actual shopping store for guests. Clothing is the big item guests need help with addition to other personal items. It runs just like a store.  Items are stocked and areas are made presentable during the operational hours.

Service Provider Mall:  Service providers are set up in booth-like areas that can provide services for the guests. Assist the guest as needed.

Pet Zone:  If you love animals, there is where you want to be!  A guest brings their animals to the pet zone where the pet is groomed, given pet daycare and veterinary services are scheduled.

Security:  Traffic and pedestrian control throughout the ranch.

Offsite Van Drivers:  Vans are dispatched on a schedule to pick up guests, and later to drop off.

Art Tent:  Assist with art projects.
