Convention CU volunteers to landscape vets home Friday
ST. PAUL, Minn. (8/13/08)--More than 60 volunteers from local credit unions and staff of the Republican National Convention will join Homes for Our Troops and the National Journal Group Friday for a "Volunteer Day" to landscape a home being built for a wounded Iraq war veteran in Minnesota. The event will be in Woodbury, Minn., where the home is being built for Sgt. Marcus Kuboy. His home is one of two specially adapted homes built for wounded veterans in conjunction with the 2008 Republican and Democratic National Conventions in St. Paul and Denver, respectively. Minnesota's credit unions, the Minnesota Credit Union Network, and state and national partners and organizations raised more than $150,000 to finance building the home. Kuboy, a Minnesota native who served three years' active duty with the Minnesota National Guard, was wounded when an improvised explosive device exploded under his vehicle. Homes for Our Troops, a non-profit organization that builds homes around the country for seriously injured American soldiers, is working with the Credit Union National Association, the Republican National Convention and the Democratic National Convention Committee on the projects. The Republican National Convention will be Sept. 1-4. The Democratic National Convention will be Aug. 25-28. Deeding ceremonies for the homes will take place during the conventions.
