In Ohio, SkillsUSA members raised $3,700 to support local veterans at the Chillicothe VA Medical Center’s Mace House. Students met with staff and landscapers to share their plan for a “healing garden” where veterans could spend time with their families and friends. From planting trees and shrubs to refurbishing wooden benches, these students from Pickaway-Ross Career and Technology Center hope to continue with the upkeep and maintenance of the garden in the future.
