WoodmenLife 623 donates $1500 to BCCC Foundation
The fraternal benefit society WoodmenLife 623 Washington donated $1,500 to the Beaufort County Community College Foundation for scholarships.
Omaha-based WoodmenLife supports organizations that help educate children, support patriotism and US citizenship, and bolster better health. WoodmenLife also provides its members with insurance and financial planning services. Last year, its Corporate Social Responsibility Committee directed significant financial support to more than 300 qualified non-profit organizations – from Junior Achievement programs in schools and the Heartland Latino Leadership Conference to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and the Omaha Community Playhouse. Tommy Hodges, a member of WoodmenLife 623, is a former BCCC employee. He was instrumental in making the donation possible.
“The goal we are always working towards is that no student gets turned away because they cannot pay. This contribution will help us with that,” said Serena Sullivan, executive director of the BCCC Foundation. “We thank Tommy for his efforts in securing this donation.”
Activities of the BCCC Foundation are overseen by a 17-member board of directors comprised of civic and business leaders from BCCC’s four-county service area. The BCCC Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization and all contributions are tax deductible. The foundation awarded over $98,000 in scholarships to BCCC students during the last year.
