Future Preston veterans home seeking donations

Posted:
PRESTON, Minn. (KTTC) -

The Preston Area Community Foundation is asking for your help supporting our nation's heroes. 

A fundraising campaign is underway for the future Minnesota State Veteran Home set to be built in Preston.

It will house about 72 beds, and construction is expected to cost more than $30 million.

The community foundation is pushing for donations before August 24th, as funds raised by then will determine just how big the veterans home will be. 

However, any donations made by next March will be matched 2 to 1 by the Federal Veterans Administration. 

So far, the veterans home has received over $1,061,000.

Donations should be directed to: Chuck Aug, at the Preston Area Community Foundation, 507-765-3823, ChuckA@fmcommunity.com, 100 St Anthony St N, Preston, MN 55965.
