(ANOKA, MN) – Haven for Heroes has undertaken the renovation of the old State Hospital buildings, converting them to temporary housing for homeless veterans in Anoka. Oakwood Insurance Agency and their partner MutualAid eXchange (“MAX”), recently gave a $2,000 grant to help with the renovations.
Bruce and Darlene Sogn are heads of the agency. After learning about the MAX Agent Community Grant Program, they and their team chose the Haven for Heroes to be a recipient. “The renovations are a huge undertaking and are primarily supported through volunteer labor and services,” Sogn said. “Our agency is excited to give back to our veterans who have given so much to us.”
