D.C. Office Sponsors Winterhaven Stand Down

March 06, 2016

For the second year in a row, Turner sponsored the Winterhaven Stand Down to support homeless veterans, run by the Washington, DC VA Medical Center. The annual event is a full day of outreach, engagement, and services, and includes everything from hot meals to haircuts to HIV testing to financial planning support.

“As with many of the VA’s efforts, there are a number of ways private sector firms like Turner can join in and support our veterans,” said Chris Jahrling, vice president and general manager. “In this case Turner and a frequent partner on Federal projects, The Ranger Group, were the food sponsors. We donated $5,000 to provide a hearty barbecue lunch for more than 800 veterans.”

According to the 2015 Annual Homeless Assessment Report, on a single January night, there were 47,725 homeless veterans across the country. On top of that, the report estimates that twice as many veterans are at-risk of becoming homeless.

“For the past two years, our Turner team has enjoyed serving veterans food and drinks at this event,” said Brian Herrin, a business development manager in the Washington, DC office. “Homelessness among veterans is unacceptable and this event gives us the chance to take some action. It also gives us a great opportunity to connect with people who have given our country so much. It’s one way of saying thank you for your service.”
