Modern Woodmen of America members in Harrison recently came together to donated over $500 worth of books(over 130 books) to Deer's School Library.

The project, which took place on November 18th at Deer, benefited Deer High Schools Library with the help of Librarian Christel Young.

"We're so happy to support our community in this way," says Lance, local Modern Woodmen volunteer leader. "Events like this give our members an opportunity to make a difference."

Coordinated by local Modern Woodmen members, the fraternal financial services organization's Summit chapters, chapters and youth service clubs provide opportunities for members to take part in social and educational activities and volunteer projects to meet local needs.

Modern Woodmen was founded in 1883 as a fraternal benefit society. The organization supports members, families and communities with a unique blend of financial services, fraternal benefits and local-impact opportunities. In 2018, Modern Woodmen and its members provided $19.9 million and 470,000 volunteer hours to support fraternal activities and programs. Learn more at
