Delaware Veterans Commission member Barry B. Newstadt made the donation of $500 from the Jewish War Veterans to Liz Byers-Jiron for the 2018 Delaware Veterans Stand Down, set for Sept. 21 at Schutte Park in Dover.

Byers-Jiron is the organizers of the Stand Down, now in its 10th year.

Stand Downs are events for veterans who need assistance, some of whom are homeless. Stand Down is one of the annual projects carried out by the Veterans Awareness Center Foundation in Greenwood, a 501(c)3 organization created by Byers-Jiron, her husband Bill and their daughter Mindy. The presentation took place at the commission's monthly meeting on June 17.
