We are celebrating our 50th year of serving veterans in our community, but need help crossing some major hurdles
We were able to update our restrooms and convert our lighting to led recently. But, the parking lot and roof have been patched for several years, and now, both need complete and proper repair
Many of the coolers, AC units, and kitchen equipment are at a point, where repair is not cost effective, and, continues to eat away at available funds. Replacement is needed.
