The Windom Veterans Memorial fund drive needs roughly $12,000 to reach completion.
According to Justin Schmit, treasurer for the Windom Area Foundation, which is the project host for donations, the Memorial Fund currently sits at $62,920. The target goal was initially set at $70,000, but that figure has increased to about $75,000, to account for all of the site needs.
