FULTON, Miss. (WTVA) -- It's a much needed face lift for the American Legion Hut in Fulton.

A host of volunteers are on hand to give the facility an updated look.

A grant from the Home Depot Foundation is covering the $17,000 cost of new flooring, remodeling of a kitchen and bathrooms.

The Ladies Auxiliary room will also be spruced up.

There will also be a new Veterans Services Office at the site.

Dozens of Home Depot employees have traveled from all over the state to work on the building.

"All the volunteers we have out here are Home Depot associates and they have been doing a great job and worked really hard on it," Home Depot Manager Josh Lesley said.

"We can take the money that we were going to have to spend on this for our needy vets in the county," American Legion Post 51 Commander Ray Barrett said.

B and F Floor Covering donated 60 hours of free labor on the project.

The project was launched on Monday and is set to be complete Friday.
