During this time, things like how to appear confident and prepared, how to address difficult questions, what to avoid and what not to say will be covered. The Career Center will also cover how personal appearance makes a big difference in an interview. Please drop by between 11 a.m. and noon to practice interview skills and receive a 25 percent discount to the Goodwill retail store.
Warsaw Veteran Military Stand Down
- noon to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 7
Goodwill and its partners have organized a military veteran stand down from noon to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 7. The event will be held at the Center Lake Pavilion, 119 E. Canal St., Warsaw. Veterans will receive information on employment and housing opportunities, details pertaining to Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) benefits, health care, dental care, free personal care items, free clothing, care kits, backpacks, transportation to and from the event, legal assistance, free dinner and more. To receive these benefits please bring a DD214, veteran ID or military ID. Families are welcome to attend also.
During the Vietnam War, a stand down was a time away from the battlefield when soldiers could rest from combat and take care of personal hygiene, eat warm meals, receive medical and dental care, and enjoy the camaraderie of battle buddies in a safe environment.
Today a stand down refers to a community-based intervention event that integrates, at one site and at one time, many resources and services that homeless or at-risk veteran and military families may need.
