Stand Down for Homeless Veterans Collection – Memorial Day Kick-off

Let’s honor those who gave their all by supporting Connecticut homeless veterans.  Take some time to visit the dollar store, grab some extra hotel products while traveling or use the links below for direct ship.  Help TTEC obtain the goal of filling 1,300 bags for Stand Down 2024 with these items for homeless veterans.  Items needed include basic needs for personal care such as soap, razors, toothpaste, toothbrushes and shampoo. The bags, hats and gloves will be sponsored by TTEC this year so we are already off to an amazing start.

1. Drop in collection bins will be located outside the Grove Street Cafe from May 15th through May 30th
