BELFAST- The Veteran Foreign Wars Post underwent major changes early Thursday morning.
The VFW Post in Belfast is getting a makeover thanks to the help from volunteers from Home Depot.
The volunteers spent Thursday morning doing grounds work, redoing the decks, opening up entryways, and replacing the old front and side doors.
“This is a great opportunity for us to give back to those veterans for their sacrifices and what they’ve done for our country. This is a small piece of what we can do to try to make their lives a little bit better and give back to them,” said Ashton Gourley, the assistant store manager of Home Depot in Bangor.
And the post’s veterans said they are grateful for all of the help
“This is absolutely incredible we couldn’t absolutely do this without their help. We were in need of having these projects done and I am so grateful that they stepped up in helping us out,” said the Post’s Operation Manager Jim Roberts.
Anthony Kimble, the Post’s Commander said the renovations are necessary, for him and the other post officials to run the post easier as well as making it a more fun place for veterans to spend time
“It’s a beacon in the community, as a veteran you take pride in your work, you take pride in yourself and you take pride in your country, this is our community right here. Our building our home our community,” Kimble said.
