Local company presents $25,000 check to Grand Rapids Home for Veterans

Great News For Vets Home …


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Orion Construction presented a $25,000 check to the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans during the facility’s annual appreciation day Saturday to go toward building repairs.

The company recently finished construction of the facility’s new front awning and felt donating the money was an  opportunity they couldn’t pass up.

During Saturday’s event, Orion also auctioned off a brand new Harley Davidson motorcycle as part of a raffle that raised thousands of dollars at last month’s annual ‘Freedom Cruise.’

“These folks have obviously sacrificed a tremendous amount for all of us and this was an opportunity for us to recognize that,” said Jason Wheeler, public relations coordinator for Orion.

“We hope what we’re doing is inspiring other people and adding to the awareness—by no means are we spearheading anything—but we’re doing what we can and really happy and honored to be a part of something like this.”
