Rick Vukasin, Great Falls Chapter SCI Board Member presented a check in the amount of $2,500 to Bill Chafin and veterans of the Grace Home Veterans Center on May 8, 2019. The check was a combination of money donated by attendees at the March Chapter Banquet and matching funds from the Chapter Board of Directors.
In addition, the chapter donated a quilted wall hanging with the name Grace Veterans Home Center sewn on.
Grace Home Veterans Center is committed to providing housing, employment and general assistance to U.S. Veterans in need. Service is provided without regards to religion, race or national origin. Grace Home is a program of St Vincent DePaul of North Central Montana.
The money will go to use in their new garage which is a woodworking and mentoring shop for veterans to engage and keep their hands as well as their minds busy.
Utilizing the new workspace, the Grace Home will work in cooperation with St. Vincent de Paul by refinishing and repurposing furniture and other items, which will then be given to the My Neighbor in Need Program.
Grace Home is at 2211 5th Avenue North; they are always grateful for donations such as tools, old furniture, and anything the vets can refurbish.
