    MAY 21, 2011 - In celebration of Armed Forces Day, San Diego area Denny's restaurants today will kick off a summer-long campaign benefitting the annual San Diego Stand Down event. As a part of an ongoing partnership with the Veterans Village of San Diego (VVSD), 39 participating restaurants will serve as drop-off points for diners to deliver much-needed supplies and funds to help military veterans in need.

    Beginning May 21st through July 7th, diners may come by any of the participating San Diego area Denny's to drop-off clothes, blankets and hygiene products, which will go toward the Stand Down, a VVSD program designed to help San Diego homeless veterans combat life on the street.

    "Denny's is delighted to work with the VVSD and show our support for the veterans of San Diego," said Ben Bagnas, a franchisee who operates two San Diego Denny's restaurants. "Stand Down is just the start of a worthwhile partnership and a great way to kick off a summer filled with events and initiatives."

    "We are grateful for Denny's participation and ongoing efforts in supporting our military veterans," said VVSD's President and CEO, Phil Landis. "As citizens of this great country, we must do all we can to support our veterans. In our partnership with Denny's, we'll be better able to assist our veterans in need."

    Last year, provisions collected prior to Stand Down served more than 900 homeless veterans and their families. The annual, three-day event takes place July 15th through July 17th and provides medical services, counseling, legal services, warm meals and more for the military veterans of greater San Diego County.

A welcoming home for our Troops.

Welcoming home our men and women doesn't end after the crowd disperses, it MUST continue on for the life of the Veteran! They've served us, now we will serve them with programs that work so they reintegrate into society.

The SWVBRC enlists the support of members of local Communities like you to increase Veteran awareness of the value of obtaining a VA card and receiving earned benefits.

Sponsorships, donations, volunteers and support from communities like yours enable us to reach out to Veterans and empower them to transition back into successful, productive enterprises that ultimately benefit all Americans and support future generations.
