UPDATE JUNE 9: The project on Edward Wiesing's home is near completion. 

However, the project is still underfunded. 

The Leatherneck Club have been hosting fundraiser nights since the project first started in April. Tenaya Creek Brewery has been donating $1 for every pint of their flagship Bonanza Brown Ale sold in their tasting room since April continuing through July 5.

ORIGINAL STORY

One local disabled veteran is getting a much needed remodel of his home to make it more accessible.

Guns to Hammers provides remodeling services for veterans with disabilities across the country. They constructed a bathroom for Edward Wiesing and also widened doorways and ramps inside his home to accommodate his wheelchair. 

Wiesing says the help couldn't come soon enough. 

"You can never repay them," he said. "You can put a dollar amount on the project, but to actually repay them would be impossible -- that's how overwhelming this whole thing is."
