Windham Neighbors Helping Neighbors receives donation from local organization

The Windham Neighbors Helping Neighbors has received a donation in the amount of $10,000 from the Lake Pine Association, the organization that managed the Odd Fellows Hall on Route 302 in Windham. The Quonset-hut type building was the home of the Lake Shore Lodge #5 and the Pinea 71 Rebekahs, together known as the Odd Fellows. The Lake Pine Association sold the building and decided to donate a portion of the profit from the sale to Windham Neighbors Helping Neighbors.

“We are very grateful to the Odd Fellows and the Lake Pine Association for their extremely generous donation to Windham Neighbors Helping Neighbors. This amazing contribution will help keep many needy Windham citizens, who have no other place to turn, warm this coming winter,” said Bill Diamond, president of WNHN. 

“The Odd Fellows and the Rebekahs have served Windham citizens in need for nearly 70 years and so it’s in keeping with their proud history to help those who struggle to stay warm in the winter by donating funds to Windham Neighbors Helping Neighbors,” said Mark Bryant, WNHN Board of Directors.
One hundred percent of every dollar donated to WNHN goes to the purchase of heating fuel.
