The Disabled American Veterans organization (DAV) and SERVPRO joined forces to donate money towards a Great Falls nonprofit.

The Grace Home Veterans Center accepted $2,500 from the two organizations.

“Great falls is a very veteran-minded community, it’s a beautiful community and it’s important that we support the vets, because they have given so much, some gave all, and it’s just a way for the community to say thank you in their own way,” Gerry Knight said.

Knight is the manager at the Grace Home and says the money will be used for a number of projects.

"We’re working on getting this garage torn down and getting this garage a shop put into its place. And in the house, we’re looking at some upgrades as well.”

Their goal is to eventually be more handicap accessible.

The money raised is from a golf tournament at the Bill Roberts Golf Course in Helena.

“It’s a great place to help out veterans, they go through some vocational process that get them back aligned with the community and get them involved,” DAV Treasurer Chase Natalie said. 

The next golf tournament hosted by SERVPRO and DAV will be July 22 and 23, 2018.
