Masonic Angel Foundation Special Broadcast - FEBRUARY 18, 2003
USO "Snowsuit" Benevolence and Star-Athol MAF Benevolences
Dear friend of the Masonic Angel Fund,
We were delighted to hear over the weekend about two different benevolence "success stories" and are pleased to share them with you.
USO New England Council - The Foundation was pleased to provide share with the USO a grant from a small private foundation in the Boston area. The donor specifically instructed us to provide USO with a generous share of the contribution to provide winter clothing to children of active-duty military families. As we have said in the past, Alice Harkins (USO Executive Director) is a thrifty shopper. Read this excellent story here
Star-Athol Lodge Masonic Angel Fund - Star-Athol was the recipient of a grant from the same private foundation's gift, again specifying that the funds should be used to provide winter clothing for children in need. Through an excellent relationship with the schools and the North Quabbin Even Start program, Star-Athol was able to provide pre-and-post-Christmas toys and warm clothing for numerous children in the greater Athol area. Thank you cards and a message from Even Start may be read at here
Please keep sharing your success stories. We are always pleased to pass these along!
Regards to all,
Bob Fellows/Masonic Angel Foundation, Inc.
