Veterans Honored at Celebrate America Event – June 24 & 25
On Thursday, June 15, more than 30 area Home Depot associates will partner with Destiny Community Center to build tiny homes for two area veterans. The tiny homes will be presented as a surprise to deserving homeless veterans at Celebrate America, an event on June 24 and 25th honoring those who served. Destiny Community Center along with E49/ Compassion Village is in the process of selecting the veteran residents. They will be told they are being honored during the Celebrate America event, but at this event they will be surprised with a tiny home in Compassion Village. Compassion Village is a community of more than 20 homes that includes wrap around services so residents with physical or emotional challenges have care and support. In addition to a new home, each veteran resident will be “adopted” by a local business or organization to ensure they receive added community interaction and funding. The community’s goal is for each resident to overcome homelessness and become self-sufficient enough to move into a single family home within a year.
