LEWISTON – With the help of Modern Woodmen of America’s Matching Fund Program, local members of the fraternal financial services organization helped raise funds for the Salvation Army through a concert and bake sale.

The event raised $500, including a match by the Modern Woodmen’s home office. The money will be used for purchasing appliances for local Salvation Army building.

Modern Woodmen members from Auburn are part of a nationwide network of camps (chapters) that help their communities through social, educational and volunteer activities.

“With the Matching Fund Program, we help carry out Modern Woodmen’s mission to improve quality of life for members and their communities,” said Deborah Wagemann, Modern Woodmen camp secretary. “And thanks to the hard work of members nationwide, Modern Woodmen makes donations totaling more than $5 million annually.”

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. The organization’s Auburn camp provides a number of volunteer service and social activities for local members.
