Womenade holding fund drive to raise money for kids

Womenade is currently holding a fund drive to raise money for local kids in need.

The group works behind-the-scenes to make sure that kids from area school districts have critical things like winter coats, dentist or doctor visits, and student activity fees when their parents or families are unable to meet those needs.

Womenade works with teachers in the Perham, Wadena, New York Mills, Henning and Battle Lake school districts, and the Womenade committee consists of representatives from each of these districts.

The group provides emergency funding in unique situations, and the assistance is kept anonymous. Teachers will contact Womenade when a need is identified, and the group makes sufficient funds immediately available.

Funding primarily comes from the group’s annual golf tournament, which was held this year on June 27 in Wadena, as well as from individual donors.

To participate in the fund drive and make a donation to Womenade, send a check to: Womenade, PO Box 466, Perham, MN  56573
