YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

Bob Evans restaurants in the valley are taking part in a effort to raise money for the Veterans Resource Center at Youngstown State University.

If customers present a flyer when they dine-in, or carry out between the hours of 6:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. on July 2, Bob Evans will donate 15% of the sales to the resource center.

Participating restaurants include Alliance, Austintown, Boardman, Canfield, East Liverpool, Liberty, Niles and Salem.

Youngstown State University is in the public phase of a $1.25 million fund-raising campaign to construct the center on Wick Avenue that will help military veterans and service members transition to and succeed as university students.

The two-story building will be constructed on the site of the former Peck House on Wick Avenue, between Pollock House and Melnick Hall. It will house the YSU Office of Veterans Affairs, created in 2009, to assist current and former members of the military who become YSU students.

The building will provide a space for students to gather, interact with other veterans and receive assistance with admissions, financial aid and other related services.
