Repairs are near completion at the Anchorage Substance Abuse Rehab center in Lee County following storm damage back in March.

High winds took off sections of the roof of two buildings at the center causing more than one hundred thousand dollars in damages. While most of the repair was covered by Insurance, some was not and community donations covered that.

In addition, Home Depot donated another Five Thousand dollars which meant more improvements could be made to the old Military facility.

"This is an old army, military barracks, and the closets only had curtains over the closets. We were able to purchase doors from Home Depot to have closet doors . The rooms are so much nicer now. We have sheet rock in the rooms, rather than the old paneling, and the rooms have been painted, and have new windows in them. They look very much like brand new rooms now," said  Anchorage Interim Director Skyler Martin.

The Anchorage was founded in 1953. No one was injured in the March storms.
