Thank you for visiting the Soboleff-McRae Veterans Village and Wellness Center in Haines, Alaska. This project -- to build a place for veterans and wellness services -- is about valuing people and community. We are one small town taking action to resolve some of our own community housing needs. We want our veterans and elders to have the choice to age in their own town, feel welcome and not move away. So we are building a home for them, and we need your help. Thank you for your donation to the project. We hope you come visit when the doors open.
"If the men and women who sacrificed for us are ignored, then our town is just a hollow shell. At best, we can only attempt to repay the debt to these friends among us by at least making sure they have a safe, decent home in their own community." - James Studley, Haines Assisted Living, Inc. (Project Manager) Board President
FOR MEDIA (FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Haines Healthcare and Housing Project Awarded -- December 3, 2013)
IN-STORE FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN: Until December 31st, your change from purchases at Haines stores can go to the construction of the building. When you shop at Mountain Market, Howser's IGA, Olerud's Market Center, Alaska Sport Shop, The Outfitter and Quick Shop, Alaskan Liquor, The Parts Place and House of Beads, ask them to "Round me up!" That will send your change straight to the Wellness Center project and count for matching grants from other sources. An easy way to make good things happen. It'll run through the end of the year, so make it your best winter habit to say, "Round me up!" at the register.
