Dec-O-Art gives back to the community by donating to Mishawaka Troop Town, a charity aimed at combatting veteran homelessness while providing support and assistance.

Dec-O-Art, the family-owned, ISO Certified label and decal printing company wanted to highlight veterans and veteran support for their community recognition in commemoration of their 50th Anniversary.

To do so, Dec-O-Art partnered with Mishawaka Troop Town, or MTT, a veteran-owned and operated initiative aimed at providing housing and necessary services to help homeless and in-need veterans.

Our focus is on those troops who have been to the battle lines and have come home. Who have sacrificed and have seen situations and experiences that leave a lasting impact,” said Nathan Dosmann, President of Dec-O-Art. “Dec-O-Art is proud to help make the bridge of returning home a shorter and easier walk.”

With a donation of $50,000, Dec-O-Art will assist Mishawaka Troop Town in helping to bring their dream to fruition.

“We hope to be Indiana’s first stick-built, tiny home community, aimed at providing transitional housing for veterans,” said Jim Metherd, co-founder of Mishawaka Troop Town and a veteran of Desert Storm. “This is a steppingstone for veterans to get back to a meaningful position within the community.”

Mishawaka Troop Town will educate veterans with a skill set to live healthier lives, offering a community of assistance while providing spiritual, mental, and physical support.

Presenting some of the planned community’s blueprints, Jim continued. “This is our dream. This is what will become a reality and we hope to break ground in the spring. This donation is truly heartfelt. I’m speechless, honestly.”
