Members of the Oakland Raiders are scheduled to spend one of their off days by visiting the residents of the Veterans Home of California, Yountville.
The Raiders are scheduled to meet with the Home's residents on Monday, Aug. 20 in the Main Dining Room, from 4:00-5:00 p.m.
“We welcome the Oakland Raiders once more to our beautiful Veterans Home,” said Robin Umberg, CalVet Undersecretary for Veterans Homes. “The time our veterans spend visiting with members of the Silver and Black is truly memorable for them, plus it gives them stories they can share with loved ones.”
