Midway City Council donates money to help a veteran
MIDWAY, N.C. — Midway Town Council will donate $1,000 to jump-start a construction project to help a retired U.S. Marine.
“Helping a Hero” is a nonprofit organization that’s building a home for Corporal Jessie Fletcher and his wife.
Fletcher lost both of his legs in Afghanistan in 2011.
A groundbreaking ceremony was held in march, but construction has not started yet.
The founder of “Helping a Hero” says construction plans are still being tweeked.
No word on when the project will be complete.
