Each holiday season we raise funds for a charitable organization that supports active military and/or veterans as part of our annual Supporting Soldiers Campaign.
This year, we partnered with Fisher House Foundation, a 501c3 charity that builds comfort homes where military & veterans’ families can stay when a loved one is in the hospital. Fisher House is a “home away from home” for families of patients receiving medical care at major military and VA medical centers. There are 90 Fisher Houses throughout the US along with the United Kingdom and Germany.
Thanks to all our generous members, agents, lodge officers, and home office staff, we exceeded our goal and raised $5,545 via the online donation page and checks/cash mailed in!
KSKJ Life matched $5,000 in addition to a Christmas bonus gift of $250, making the total donation for Fisher House Foundation $10,795.
88 runners took to the pavement the week of September 12th to show their commitment to physical and mental wellness and compete in a friendly challenge against other members. Proceeds raised from the event benefited the Educational Grant Program.
As a fraternal benefit society, KSKJ Life has been offering community outreach and charitable support for members and their communities since 1894. We want to ensure that every person and child can access the food they need by supporting our local food banks. That’s why KSKJ Life started the Uniting to Fight Hunger Campaign to benefit Feeding America and the 200 food banks and 60,000 food pantries they support across the country and in the communities where our members live.
In just 6 weeks, $7,450 was raised by supporters, including donations from volunteers, agents and staff. KSKJ Life contributed a match of $5,000, bringing the total donation for Feeding America to $12,450!
For every dollar donated, Feeding America is able to provide up to 10 meals for those in need, resulting in more than 124,000 meals for our neighbors across the country.
