Veterans activities program receives grant assistance

MARQUETTE — The DAV Chassell Chapter 115 presented a $4,000 check to the D.J. Jacobetti Home for Veterans this morning.

The chapter inherited some money when one of the members passed away.

Those funds will be used for the activities program.

They’re hoping if there is something special the veterans want to do that the VA can’t provide; that this money will help.

“It gives the Veterans a chance to go on outings or whatever they want to do. They can afford to do this now, rather than sitting in their room all day or watch TV. They can get out and enjoy the world.,” said Rick Hayrynen, Commander of Chapter 115.

They presented a $4,000 check at the Oscar G. Johnson VA Medical Center in Iron Mountain as well.
