Frederick, Md. (BW)- The Veterans of Foreign Wars John R. Webb Post 3285 in Frederick is seeking donations to complete a new building project.
The building will serve as the new home for post 3285. It will span about 9,000 square feet and cost between $2.5 million and $3 million.
Construction is set to begin in the Spring of 2024 with plans for the building to be completed in September 2024.

Patrick Pierson is the New Building Chairman for the VFW John R. Webb Post 3285. He said this building will not only provide services to veterans but also serve as a welcoming environment for veterans to come and feel like they belong.
