PRESTON, Minn. – The deadline has been extended for donations to the future State Veterans Home that will be built in Preston.
Contributions can now be made until September 25, with all donations matched two to one by the U.S. Government. Organizers says donations made by that date will determine the size and feature of the veterans home. The hope is for a 72-bed facility but that could change.
More than $180,000 in individual donations have been collected for the project, which will be the only official veterans home in southeastern Minnesota.
The Preston Veterans Home Committee says it would like to thank everyone who has supported this regional project for our veterans
