Modern Woodmen "dared" to raise money for non-profit Helping Paws Maine
Local Modern Woodmen of America representatives raised over $2700 for Helping Paws of Maine, a volunteer organization whose mission is dedicated to saving lives and finding permanent homes for stray, abandoned, and surrendered puppies and dogs. The fraternal financial organization’s unique matching fundraising campaign “25 Dares of Christmas” included outrageous acts such as waxing their armpits, eating raw clams out of a can, eating raw onions like an apple and licking peanut butter off each other’s feet. The event not only raised lots of money but also provided unique entertainment for all those that attended. Although funds were raised in December, the check was donated to Helping Paws in late March.
