More than 80 City employees will volunteer at the "Heart of America Annual Stand Down" for Kansas City’s homeless veterans on June 6-7.

The 15th annual event, which this year coincides with the annual "Day of Caring" activities, will be at the Metro Tech Center, 1215 E. Truman Road and at Municipal Court, 1101 Locust.

"We are pleased to have so many City employees demonstrating their commitment to the community in which we live and work," said Kansas City Combined Charities Campaign Committee chairwoman Rusty Williams.

City employees will assist veterans from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on June 6, and from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on June 7. Volunteers will help staff various booths, which will provide identification cards, clothing, hair cuts, warm meals, entertainment and tax preparation. In addition, Municipal Court employees will help veterans with legal matters.

City employees also will help to dismantle booths on June 7 at the end of the project.
