GR Vets Home wins 2nd place in Home Depot contest.

Mlive dot com is reporting that the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans has won 2nd place in their contest. The vets home will get 150,000 from Home Depots Foundations Aprons In Action.

The home is planning on using the 150 grand to pay for renovations to the closed 4th floor of the McLeish building, seeing how they say that the State of Michigan will not pay for the upkeep of the building.

Mean while, the Rankin building (oldest of the 3 main buildings) needs serious upgrading and repair. Rankin needs new elevators, a new air circulating system, and repairs that have been waiting for over 3 years now.

So where is the next contest? Or do we need to have a bake sale to provide for the Rankin repairs?
