WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The Exchange Club of Lafayette is asking for your help to save the Indiana Veterans' Home Cemetery Chapel.
The chapel was built in 1932 and has fallen into disrepair.
The Exchange Club has taken up the responsibility of renovating and restoring the old building. Proposed renovations could cost $40,000.
The Chapel needs roof and ceiling repairs, as well as smaller odds and ends.
Scott Myers is the fundraiser chairman and he said he has a responsibility to the veterans laid to rest in the cemetery.
“2,950 people are buried here right now, and to not have a chapel available for funeral services is just a shame to me,” Myers said. “That's my personal priority.”
The club has raised more than $4,000 so far.
To donate, mail checks payable to Exchange Club of Lafayette Foundation at 1205 Norma Jean Drive, Lafayette, IN, 47909.
To discuss other contribution methods, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Scott Myers at (765) 474-7479.
