CLICK THE BOOTS TO DONATE
Help a Vet Gain Some Traction

Sometimes Veterans arrive at the Stand Down with boots that have seen hard miles, are ill-fitting or worn smooth on the bottom—new footwear is out of their reach.

Together we can outfit them with something better for the road ahead. With the help of local retailers, we can outfit a Stand Down participant with new, quality boots that are a perfect fit for only $50.

Help us meet our goal of putting 50 pairs of 'Boots on the Ground' for Veterans in need this October. Click on the old boots to donate to our campaign or mail your donation to NCSD, Attn: Boots on the Ground, P.O. Box 1012, Arcata, CA 95521.
