Mt. Morris Holden donates to American Red Cross

The Mt. Morris Holden Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (WELCA) recently became HEROES for their local Red Cross. Their $1,250 gift will provide direct client assistance for residential fires occurring this coming winter in Waushara County. 

Winter is the busiest fire season and brutal for families who’ve just lost everything. Last winter the Red Cross responded to 10 fires and directly assisted 32 individuals. 

Over the past two years, the Mt. Morris Holden WELCA also provided hundreds of comfort kits for children and adults affected by disaster.
