ASHLAND — Modern Woodmen of America members in Ashland recently came together to provide necessary items for a new mother nursing class.

The project, which took place on July 20th at Ashland Pregnancy Center, benefited Ashland Pregnancy Center.

“We’re so happy to support our community in this way,” says Lauren Stalnaker, 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.
