WCCO Special: MACV's 'StandDown' Event At Target Field Gets Needed Services To Veterans

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) -- The Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans is working to change lives. On Wednesday morning, WCCO was live at Target Field, where veterans gathered for a holiday meal and so much more.

It's all part of WCCO's Home for the Holidays campaign to help end veteran homelessness in Minnesota.

The event is a twist on MACV's traditional "StandDowns." Besides gathering together for food, it's a chance for veterans to get the services they need to thrive -- everything from advice on finding jobs and renting a home to vaccines and haircuts.

Watch the entire WCCO special above, and go to for more on how to donate.
