Grillin’ & Chillin’ Kicks in $1000 to American Legion for Annual “Stand-Down”
Dixon’s Grillin & Chillin Car & Truck Show’s Tom Carrier gives $1000 to Norm Shontz for Dixon’s American Legion Post 208 Stand-Down Fund Raiser, held on Aug. 2, 2014.   
So what is a “Stand-Down”? 
Stand-Down is a program for needy veterans. It is designed to transform the despair and immobility of homeless into the momentum necessary to get into recovery, to resolve legal issues, to seek employment, to access health and benefits, to reconnect with the community and to get off the streets…
Each year the Stand-Down has grown and been refined to meet the needs of our area homeless veterans. Dixon’s Grillin & Chillin Car & Truck Show’s Tom Carrier, Mike Hamilton, Rich & Janette Barrango is proud to help in this great undertaking.
