Modern Woodmen of America members in West Michigan recently helped raise money for the Michigan chapter of the Warrior Brotherhood Veterans Motorcycle Club with a special fundraising event on June 1, 2018.
The event, which included the First Annual Golf FORE Vets golf outing., raised $7335. This includes $2500 matched by Modern Woodmen through the organization’s Matching Fund Program. The funds will be used to support Operation Camo Santa coming up this Christmas season. Veteran families can be nominated or apply for some financial assistance for gifts for children that might not receive gifts otherwise and other hardships around the holidays. Last year the WBVMC gave over $6,000 to veteran families in need through Operation Camo Santa.
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.
“The community truly came together to support a local need,” says Jonathan Venlet, 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.
