Modern Woodmen fundraiser for Sanborn County 4-H is deemed a success

Modern Woodmen of America members in the Woonsocket area recently helped raise money for Sanborn County 4-H with a special fundraising event during the month of February.
The event, group fruit sales, raised $5,800. This includes $1,250 matched by Modern Woodmen through the organization’s Matching Fund Program. The funds will be used for sheep, goat and swine pens at the Sanborn County 4-H grounds.
The Matching Fund Program offers Modern Woodmen members nationwide the chance to show their support for a community cause, organization or individual in need by holding fundraisers. These fundraising projects contribute $10 million to community needs across the country each year.
“The community truly came together to support a local need,” says Stacey Malde, local Modern Woodmen volunteer leader.  “That support is what it’s all about.”
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.
For more information or to get involved, contact Stacey Malde at 605-732-4340, Stacey.malde@mwarep.org.
As a tax-exempt fraternal benefit society, Modern Woodmen sells life insurance, annuity and investment products, not to benefit stockholders, but to improve quality of life for its members, their families and their communities. This is accomplished through social, charitable and volunteer activities. Annually, Modern Woodmen and its members provide nearly $20 million and over 400,000 volunteer hours for community projects nationwide.
