Modern Woodmen of America members in Jonesborough recently helped raise money for Isaiah 117 House with a special fundraising event on September 27.

The event, which included a golf tournament, raised $12,500. This includes $2,500 matched by Modern Woodmen through the organization’s Matching Fund Program. The funds will be used for supplies needed for the children Isaiah 117 House serves.

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 Donna Bare, 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.
