FONTANET, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — The Fontanet Action Community Team hosted a breakfast Saturday morning to help raise money to support veterans in need.
The proceeds from Saturday’s event went to the Veterans Village Project. This is an ongoing plan to build six tiny homes at the intersection of 23rd street and Maple Avenue in Terre Haute to help house veterans around the community.
Organizers say they rely on events like this to help reach their funding goals and make the little homes a reality. Kyle McClain is with the Terre Haute Area Association Realtors, and he says he is grateful for the support they received from residents in Fontanet since they started this project.
“Although Fontanet is a quite outside the Terre Haute area, they are still a part of our community. They still love helping our veterans and they are showing that to us today.”
McClain also wanted to add that this project is all volunteer based. He wanted to give a shoutout all of those that have helped make this dream a reality.
“The building of these houses would not be possible without the help of all of our volunteers. Everyone that works with us is doing it out of the kindness of their hearts and we could not be more appreciative of them and their services to this project. It’s truly a blessing.”
The Fontanet Action Community Team will host a side-by-side benefit at the Bean Dinner Grounds fountain at 3 p.m. next Saturday.
