Mercymount Supports Operation Stand Down


On Thursday, September 18, members of Mercymount Country Day School’s club Teens Living for Christ (TLC) present the collection of new or gently used towels and wash cloths they gathered over the last few weeks to a member of Operation Stand Down Rhode Island.

The organization, located in Johnston, helps homeless and at-risk veterans to secure stable housing and provides other assistance according to individual needs including case management, referrals and education and employment services. After being received, the items were then taken to Diamond Hill State Park to be used for Operation Stand Down Weekend, an event designed to raise awareness of the plight of at-risk veterans.
