MANSFIELD -- Modern Woodmen of America members in Mansfield/Ashland recently came together to donate much-needed items to Ashland Pregnancy Care Center.

The project, which took place on Oct. 15 at Modern Woodmen of America office in Mansfield, benefited Ashland Pregnancy Care Center.

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