Veterans Resource Fair in Santa Ana
On Thursday, Supervisor Andrew Do and OneOC's Stand UP for Veterans hosted a Veterans Resource Fair at Santa Ana Municipal Stadium.

The fair was organized in a base camp model that included showers, meals, clothing, hygiene care kits, medical and legal advice, veteran benefit information, and employment services, in a safe and supportive environment. Participants were paired with a veteran peer navigator to guide them through the services that were offered. The first 100 who showed up received a “Barracks in a Bag” kit and other free supplies.

The event was held in partnership with the Office of Supervisor Andrew Do, the County of Orange, the City of Santa Ana, the Honorable Councilmember Juan Villegas, and many other organizations.

National County Government Month - “Brilliant Ideas at Work”
Supervisor Andrew Do has been showcasing a series of events and projects by the County of Orange each week.

One “Brilliant Idea at Work” is the County Community Service Center (CCSC) in Westminster. Supervisor Do recently held an open house at the CCSC Annex to highlight access to representatives of nearly every County agency including those for healthcare, housing, marriage licenses, and more.

Another project highlighted is the start of the Civic Center Master Plan with the demolition of building 16 in Downtown Santa Ana. Reinvesting in infrastructure is important to the future of County services and to ensure that resources are used efficiently and effectively.

The Santa Ana Gardens Bikeway is a great example of the County’s commitment to expanding open spaces for recreational opportunities and making sure children and their families have safe access between schools and parks.
