BAINBRIDGE, Ga. (WTXL) - A veterans center that burned to the ground last September is getting a new home thanks to a donation. 

The organization Honor Sentinel is setting up the honor house veterans center, after raising money for several months to rebuild it.

The group says the community has pitched in around $4,000. The amount will pay a down payment on the location, buy insurance, and pay for repairing and maintaining their new home.

The new location is a house on a residential street. The house was originally set up as a place for local veterans to go, so they would not have to travel all the way to Tallahassee.

The former location on Evans Street was intentionally set on fire in early September of 2015. The building was a total loss.

Officials with Honor Sentinel, say they have not been notified of any new information regarding the arson investigation. There's still a $10,000 reward being offered for information leading to an arrest in that arson. The new center will hold an opening ceremony at a date to be announced.
