KENNEWICK, Wash. — An accessible archery range for disabled veterans will be completed thanks to a grant from Gesa Credit Union.  

Friends of Disabled Veterans has announced it was chosen to receive $50,000 through the Local Heroes Grant Award.  

The non-profit organization plans to use these funds for an Americans with Disability Act compliant outdoor archery range and pathways.  

Friends of Disabled Veterans helps disabled veterans by providing outdoor space where they can enjoy recreational activities. The organization is continuing work on its 140-acre ADA compliant outdoor retreat, located about 15 minutes from Benton City. 

The Gesa Credit Union’s Local Heroes Grant Award is presented to organizations that help local heroes, such as healthcare workers, law enforcement, firefighters, teachers and veterans. This year, grants were provided to 43 organizations.
