Modern Woodmen of America members in Fairmount recently helped raise money for Sonoraville High School and Red Bud Middle School FFA with a special fundraising event on March 31.
The event, which included barbecue lunch plates, raised money for the local FFA Alumni. The money was partly matched by Modern Woodmen through the organization’s Matching Fund Program. The funds will be used to sponsor Sonoraville and Red Bud Middle FFA students attending the state FFA convention.
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.
