GREAT FALLS — Angels In Camo is helping veterans in need during this winter season. This organization is involved in a special program called the Dakota Project.



Connie Walters: "Angels in Camo is a holiday gift program for local veterans here in Great Falls. And in December, I was given a lead to apply for some winter gear through Zeldin Cares. And they launched what they're calling the Dakota Project, partnered with Arctix, and winter gear is their game. They opened it up to charities that qualified and applied. So in December, I thought, what the heck, I'm going to apply. And in January I got 33 boxes of winter gear."

Veterans from the Grace Home are receiving winter jackets, pants and boots that were donated through this project.

Connie Walters: "They wanted to give winter gear to underserved communities. So even though they're back east and it's a huge corporation, they're given 108,000 pieces of winter gear out. It's like a $5 million project."
