A Marion Center student recently donated $700 to the Homeless Veterans’ Housing project in Indiana.
Chelsea Yeomans presented the donation to the Indiana VFW on Saturday at the Walmart in White Township. She raised the money through a powder puff football game held at her school, Marion Center High School, in November. She organized the event and donation as her senior project.
“She wanted to do something for the veterans in honor of her brother Gregory Lydick, who is an Army veteran who served in Afghanistan,” said her mother, Jaci Lydick Yeomans, of her project.
Gregory is a Marion Center High School graduate who resides in Indiana.
