MW partners with Homeless Shelter to support fundraiser


The Wilmington Chapter of Modern Woodmen of America recently partnered with the Clinton County Homeless Shelter on a Matching Funds program to support the Spring Soup Lunch Fundraiser.

The Shelter raised $3,668 and Modern Woodmen matched $2,500, raising the total funds to $6,168 to help with residents’ needs and to purchase food and supplies for the Shelter.

Financial representative Dan Mayo said, “Modern Woodmen is pleased to be able to help support the Homeless Shelter’s Spring Soup Lunch Fundraiser. It was a great project, and it was good to be able to do the Soup Lunch in person and include the raffle for door prizes. We know the great work of the shelter and the Matching Funds program is a program to help support quality non-profits in the great work they do.”

Shelter director Denise Stryker said, “Thank you Modern Woodmen for the $2,500 matching funds donation. The shelter depends on donations from our local community to help provide services for men, women and children in Clinton County, and we are so grateful for the support of Modern Woodmen. The total raised of $6,168 to benefit the Clinton County Homeless Shelter is the most raised in the history of our soup fundraisers since the late 1990s.”

Founded in 1883 as a fraternal benefit society, Modern Woodmen of America offers financial services and fraternal member benefits to individuals and families throughout the United States.
