Groundbreaking Monday for Minn. injured-vet home project
WOODBURY, Minn. (4/24/08)--A groundbreaking ceremony marking the launch of a new Minneapolis-St. Paul area home for a wounded veteran of the Iraq war will be held Monday in Woodbury, Minn. Credit unions are involved in raising funds to pay for the home. The ceremony will be on the site of a future home, which will be presented to wounded Iraq war veteran Sgt. Marcus Kuboy sometime around the 2008 Republican National Convention in St. Paul in early September. The ceremony is part of a “Homes for Our Troops” initiative and a project of the Republican National Convention. The Minnesota Credit Union Network (MnCUN) and the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) are involved in the project. Minnesota credit unions are the driving force behind the initiative to build Sgt. Kuboy’s home. They will raise funds for this service project, MnCUN said. A parallel home project will be built in Denver, the site of the Democratic National Convention in August. Credit union involvement in both states is being coordinated by CUNA. Founded in 2004, Homes For Our Troops is a national 501(c)(3)nonprofit, nonpartisan organization committed to providing specially adapted homes to the most severely injured veterans, and providing those homes at no cost to the veterans they serve.
