An event being held Friday is helping Charleston's homeless veterans with the resources they need to get back on their feet.
The 16th Annual Veteran Stand Down Against Homelessness event starts at 8:00 a.m and ends at 2:00 p.m. at the VA Community Resource and Referral Center at 2424 City Hall Lane in North Charleston.
Hundreds of homeless veterans in the greater Charleston area will be able to receive haircuts, food, clothing, medical screening and legal counseling.
The event focuses on Veterans who are living on the streets, or are close to it.
Organizers say events like Veteran Stand Down serve the community members in need, but that veterans need help every day.
Admission to the event is free.
