Giving Back to Those Who Gave
Vacaville City Coach Helping vets During North Bay Stand Down
Many area veterans need assistance. They need housing, legal counsel, medical or dental care and benefits information. Some may require food, clothing or counseling services. On October 13th, 14th and 15th they will receive that assistance at the Dixon Fairgrounds, and Vacaville City Coach is going to get them there and back, free of charge.
The North Bay Stand Down is an annual event designed to provide services to veterans and their families, and the Vacaville Public Works transit system has been devoted to playing a role in making it easier for them to receive transportation.
“My dad is a Vietnam vet” said Brian McLean, Vacaville Public Works Manager. “I grew up in this area, appreciating the service from our veterans and I’m proud that I can be a part of City Coach’s way of thanking our veterans in need.”
“North Bay Stand Down is a wonderful event,” said Travis Air Force spokesman Patrick Harrower. “We thank all those who are offering these needed services to our veterans and applaud City Coach for providing transportation to them.”
City Coach will be picking up veterans and their families at Mission Solano and Allan Witt Park in Fairfield and at the corner of School and McClellan Street near Andrews park in Vacaville. City Coach will return to the Fairgrounds to offer a free return to the same stops on October 15th.
