Volunteers of America Northern Rockies held a Wall Signing event Thursday to recognize donors to the new Life House facility currently under construction.
The Wall Signing event had donors write private messages on walls of the new Life House before sheetrock is put up. The event is intended let donors give a personal message to those in recovery.

Holsinger addressed donors and board members in attendance, thanking them for their contributions. He says that their gifts benefit the men who are in need of an upgraded facility.
The new facility, replacing the current Life House on Saberton, will hold 50 residents, have weight room facilities, a central dining area and administration offices.
VOA Director of Development P.J. Triede updates us on where the project sits.
So far, VOA has raised a little more than $2 million for the Life House, and needs an additional $640,000 to fund the project. Triede says they expect to be able to gather that amount by June 2012. The Daniels Fund, Joe and Arlene Watt Foundation and Forest Mars have each made their own contributions of $500,000 to the facility. Other donors at the event asked to remain anonymous.
The new Life House facility has a scheduled move-in date of this coming spring, possibly in May of 2012.
