Businessman to build heroes wall

Derek Volk, the president of Volk Packaging Corporation, is committing the resources and space necessary to build the Volk Packaging Heroes Wall. The structure, which will be built at the company headquarters in Biddeford, is intended to honor all men and women who have served, or are currently serving, in the armed forces of the United States. Individuals or other organizations may purchase a tile on the wall and put their loved one’s image and military information on the wall.

Volk has committed that all proceeds from the wall will be donated to the Biddeford, Saco, Old Orchard Beach VFW.

If people are interested in honoring someone who served they may contact Volk Packaging either through their website, http://www.volkboxes.com/ about-volk/in-the-armed-forces or Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/ VPCHeroesWall/.

The tiles that will adorn the wall are 8.5 inches high by 11 inches long and are made of black and gray granite. The cost per tile is $150 and a portion of that fee will be used to have etching completed.
