BRISTOL, R.I. (WPRI) - The Rhode Island Veterans' Home in Bristol received some much needed improvements today.
Dozens of volunteers helped to renew the facility's grounds by painting walls and laying new pavers on walkways.

The project was made possible through donations from local businesses as well as resident donations.
