WADENA — The Wadena County Developmental Achievement Center (DAC) is in another push to raise much needed funds to support costly repairs of their buildings in Verndale and Sebeka.
DAC Executive Director Rose Bakke was thankful for all who have donated so far as they seek to replace roofs and upgrade five furnaces in their buildings.
After an initial call for support, the Initiative Foundation has awarded the DAC a matching grant which allows them to raise more. They hope to support the Wadena County DAC and all the work they do with the individuals who use their services and help keep the Verndale Grocery & Treasures Too up and running. That's the only grocery store in Verndale.
"So please consider donating to the Wadena County DAC and watch your money double. These funds that are donated will be used for building maintenance and replacing furnaces," according to a DAC news release.
For every dollar raised at this time, the Initiative Foundation will match it, up to $5,000.
Send your donations to:
Wadena County DAC
PO Box 235, Sebeka MN 56477

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
