PHOENIX (KSAZ) -

The community helping Arizona veterans Friday, especially those who happen to be homeless. The event called Arizona Stand Down took place in downtown Phoenix.
    
A big sense of community for Arizona veterans at the Memorial Coliseum, a big outreach event.

"From all the clothing to the housing and all the benefits I can get here like social security, disability, or whatever I need help with," said Patrick Castaneda.

Every veteran will also get a toiletry bag with a towel, soap, shampoo, toothpaste, and more inside the bag.

All 1,500 toiletry bags were created by donations from Discount tire, United for change and Packages from Home volunteers.

"The need is actually shifting in our community with all the work that's been done to combat homelessness among veterans, we're seeing more veterans who are not homeless, but who are at risk for homelessness," said Sean price with the Arizona Department of Veterans Services.

"Very important for us, for all us veterans," said Castaneda.
 
The event also held resume and interview workshops to guide veterans in pursuit of work. Clothing helps get them ready for a day on the job. A worthwhile cause to support the men and women who served.

Several companies that also took part in today's event including Courtesy Chevrolet, Petsmart and Sprouts.
