Huntersville Modern Woodmen help fund Rachel’s Challenge
by Staff Writer
Through the Modern Women of America’s matching funds program, the Lake Norman Charter Parent and Teacher Organization raised and donated $3,200 to help fund the school initiative. The mission of Rachel’s Challenge is to “inspire, equip and empower every person to create a permanent, positive culture change in their school, business and community by starting a chain reaction of kindness and compassion,” a school news release said.
A presentation about the program was held at the school for students and community members Sept. 27. As a result, Lake Norman Charter started a Friends of Rachel club, which will work to develop ideas to help prevent bullying and promote a positive school environment through social and emotional education.
The Matching Fund program offers Modern Woodmen members nationwide the chance to show their support for a community cause, organization or individual in need by holding fundraisers. The fundraising projects contribute more than $6.5 million to community needs nationwide each year.
