Beaver Dam Modern Woodmen of America members recently partnered with The Gathering Source to raise money at their annual Fall Fest on October 14, 2017.
The event, which included a car show, crafts, games for all ages, great food, and raffles for cash and prizes, raised $5,000, including $1250 from Modern Woodmen’s Matching Fund Program. The funds will be used to support The Gathering Source Mission of caring for hunger, education and wellness in its rural communities.
The Matching Fund Program offers Modern Woodmen members nationwide the chance to show their support for a community cause, organization or individual in need through fundraisers. These fundraising projects contribute more than $10 million to community needs across the country each year.
Coordinated by local Modern Woodmen members, the fraternal financial services organization’s Summit chapters, chapters and youth service clubs provide opportunities for members to take part in social and educational activities and volunteer projects to meet local needs.
