Fergus Falls


The following topics each include a list of giving opportunities brought forth by Veterans and their family members, staff, volunteers, and friends of the Veterans Home in Fergus Falls. We had many people who were involved in determining our needs list and giving opportunities for fiscal year 2021 – 2022. If you feel led to make a gift (cash/check and/or planned gift) to directly support our Veteran heroes at the Minnesota Veterans Home – Fergus Falls, please contact Gary Harris, Jr. You can also make a direct monetary donation online through our Donation Portal.


Family members, friends and community members play a key role in helping us serve Veterans through donations of time and talents. Several of the following lists illustrate our current needs for special projects, volunteer opportunities and in-kind donation items. For volunteer related questions or more information, please contact Kathy Lehn, Volunteer Services Coordinator – Fergus Falls at (218) 321-2565.
