ELKHART — A local man has volunteered to help save Elkhart’s Wall of Heroes.

The memorial wall at 508 Oakland Ave. is for sale for $35,000. Current owner Don Fisher said he owes $500 back taxes on the property and cannot afford to keep it.

Jason Moreno said he is working with Fisher and has set up an account at First Source Bank to receive donations to save the memorial.

People wishing to donate to the effort can make a donation at any First Source Bank location.

Moreno said he will also ask the Elkhart City Council for a tax abatement on the property as long as it continues to be used as a memorial.

“It not only memorializes veterans but also firefighters and police,” Moreno said. “It’s only appropriate to have something to honor their sacrifice for the community.”

 In this Oct. 24, 2014 photo from the U.S. Geological Survey, the lava flow from Kilauea Volcano that began June 27 is seen as it crossed Apa?a Street near Cemetery Road near the town of Pahoa on the Big Island of Hawaii.  Hawaii authorities on Saturday told several dozen residents near the active lava flow to prepare for a possible evacuation in the next three to five days as molten rock oozed across the country road and edged closer to homes. The USGS says the flow is currently about 160 to 230 feet (50 to 70 meters) wide and moving northeast at about 10 yards (nine meters) per hour. It's currently about six-tenths of a mile (one kilometer) from Pahoa Village Road, the town's main street. (AP Photo/U.S. Geological Survey)
