Members of the Ironton Modern Woodmen of America chapter will sponsor a fundraiser March 10 at the Follis Banquet Center in Fredericktown to benefit Sheets/Young Medical Supplies.
Coordinated by local Modern Woodmen members, chapters provide opportunities to connect through social activities and volunteer projects.
Plans for the fundraiser include a team trivia night with concessions to be sold. The money raised will be matched by Modern Woodmen’s home office, up to $2,500 through the fraternal benefit society’s Matching Fund Program and will be used for the purchase of medical supplies for those in need in Madison, St. Francois and Iron counties.
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 more than $6.5 million to community needs nationwide each year.
For more information about how you can contribute to this fundraising event, contact Anitra Stark at 701-0163 or 546-0365.
As a tax-exempt fraternal benefit society, Modern Woodmen sells life insurance, annuity and investment products not to benefit stockholders but to improve the quality of life of its stakeholders – members, their families and their communities. This is accomplished through social, charitable and volunteer activities. Annually, Modern Woodmen and its members provide more than $23 million and nearly 1 million volunteer hours for community projects nationwide.
